Font Designer – Joe Nicholson

Joe Nicholson is an honors graduate of Humber College’s Package Design and Development Program in Rexdale, Ontario, Canada. In 1985, after working in several studio environments, he launched his own company, Design Fortress, which specialized in packaging graphics, corporate identity programs, logotypes and typeface design.
Nicholson’s Prosper typeface family was produced to incorporate both “open” and “closed” designs in light, book, medium, bold and black weights, with both condensed and italic complements. His goal was to produce a type family that was simple in form, modern in look, and with a subtle touch of elegance.
