He began his type design odyssey in the industrial mill towns of Yorkshire surrounded by historic textiles, modern art and the no-nonsense voice of the people. A Draughtsmen at heart with a passion for function, modernism and the understated Jonathan has shaped out a career designing typefaces that are respected and recognised by trusted brands, leading video game developers and global manufacturing companies.
