Information about the typeface designer Jason Smith and his fonts.
Jason Smith established Fontsmith in 1997, thus concluding a typographic apprenticeship which began several years earlier at the Monotype drawing office in Surrey.
Since then Fontsmith has steadily gained a reputation for producing work which Jason describes as "Very human and full of character", bringing style and personality to the business of crafting 'typographic identity'.
Perhaps best known outside design circles for bespoke fonts created for clients such as Channel 4, Post Office and ITV, Fontsmith is currently focussing on expanding its library of "fresh and exclusive" downloadable fonts.
