Font Designer – Kent Lew
Now, Kent is a freelance book designer, type designer, and would-be type historian, working out of his home in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts. Coming from a family of writers and editors, it seems inevitable that he would gravitate toward the design of words and text. His primary interest lies in text typeface design, drawing heavily on his own experience specifying and setting type, and he is greatly influenced by the work of mid-20th century designers like Dwiggins, Ruzicka, and Blumenthal.
Kent’s first full typeface design, Whitman, was awarded a Certificate of Excellence in Type Design and a Judge’s Choice by the Type Directors Club in 2002.
