Hackberry fonts was founded in the early 1990s as NuevoDeco Typography to market fonts David Bergsland designed to be used in his digital publishing books. In general, they are designed for professional graphic design use. The goal of his fonts is to add a hand-drawn edge to them. In this age of increasing technological “slickness” he purposely loosens the structure and adds “air” to the glyphs with breaks. The major thing is that they are designed for use in books and newsletters. They work very well for normal graphic design, but they really shine in book production.

Jim Harris of Harris Design is still gasping for oxygen after moving his design and type studio from near sea level in California to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado in 2001.

Jims major background has been in environmental design and he has worked on projects for the National Park Service, Walt Disney Imagineering, and the City of New York, as well as many ad agencies around the country.
