Font Designer – Leon Hulst

Leon Hulst (1966) – graphic and typografic designer.
I’m founder of TypeFaith Fonts and WAT ontwerpers (WAT design) established in Utrecht, The Netherlands. I’m interested in music, design and people.

My interest in fonts started during my studies at the art school. Brody and Emigre inspired me at that time. First I started to scan old lead type fonts for own use. Not many fonts where digital at that time. A bit later I start designing typefaces myself. Designing fonts is due to a desire for more uniqueness of the graphic designs we create at WAT ontwerpers. The idea that other people use my fonts is very satisfying. Many of my fonts were created by playing with type to create logos and posters. These are often free to use, you can find them on the website
