Information about the typeface designer Kris Sowersby and his fonts.
Sowersby (BCGD) graduated in two-thousand-and-something from the Wanganui School of Design. After brief employment as a signwriter and graphic designer, has been self-employed since 2005 as Director of Typography for Klim Type Foundry & The Letterheads Ltd. These two entities represent the two sides to Sowersby's work: typeface design (KLIM) & graphic design (The Letterheads). Both disciplines live in complete symbiosis with one another - the micro surgery of type design informing the macro arrangements of graphic design & vice versa.
Sowersby's reputation for typeface design has led to him working with, and for, contemporary typographic luminaries such as Christian Schwartz, Erik Spiekermann, Chester Jenkins, House Industries, DNA Design, and Pentagram.
