Colin Ford.
Advanced Font Engineer.

In his words.

Designers rely on typefaces to help convey their ideas to their audience. If a typeface is well-made, it cannot only bear that weight, but support designers in reaching for heights they couldn’t before.

Colin is an advanced font engineer based in New York. He is a graduate of the Type and Media masters program at the Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten (KABK) and the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) undergraduate program before that. Over the past decade as a type designer, he has lectured and taught workshops at the Atelier National de Recherche Typographique, the Cooper Union, MICA, and the Letterform Archive. He teaches a course in font production for the [email protected] Extended Program. 

Prior to joining Monotype, Colin worked on a variety of projects at H&Co, including Decimal, which was featured in the Netflix documentary series, Abstract. Other favorite projects include Chronicle Hairline, Quarto, Sentinel Pro, and Sagittarius.
