Interview [ to be annonced ]
Jeremy Tankard (1969) is a graduate of Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art. Initially working at Addison Design Consultants and then Wolff Olins, he left corporate design in order to pursue his interests in type as an independent type designer in 1998.
Designing type since the early 90s, his first typeface Disturbance was released through FontShop International in 1993. This was followed by Bliss in 1996 as part of the Agfa Creative Alliance and later typefaces for Adobe and Microsoft. Eclectic in inspiration and reference, Jeremy continues to design a wide range of type that seek to offer new visual textures for creative use. Some designs are bespoke commissions but many are available for general use through his own foundry at typography.net.
He is a member of the Double Crown Club, a past Chair of the Wynkyn de Worde Society, and current Chair of Letter Exchange.
