Ann Pomeroy started designing typefaces at Rolling Stone in the late '70s, where she was the typographer. Those were made into two-inch film fonts for the hand-cranked device, the VGC Phototypositor.
When PostScript fonts arrived, she started working in the late 80s on a project with Paula Scher, revising some of her favorite types. Later she designed the Newsweek logo with Jim Parkinson and Roger Black.
