Dutch type designer Luc(as) de Groot is best-known for his superfamily Thesis: TheSans, TheSerif, TheMix, TheAntiqua, with monospaced and even Arabic variants. He designed custom fonts for periodicals such as taz, die tageszeitung, Der Spiegel and Jungle World in Germany, Le Monde, Metro, and the Brazilian newspaper Folha de S.Paulo; and corporate type for international companies like Sun Microsystems, Bell South, Heineken, Volkswagen and Miele. For Microsoft he developed Consolas, successor for Courier, and Calibri, the new default typeface in MS Word.

Luc(as) is a father, husband, illustrator and master of many crafts. As a devoted type technician and hinting lover, he invented the Anisotropic Topology-Dependent Theory of Interpolation. He runs his type foundry LucasFonts in Berlin, teaches and gives lectures around the world.

Designers across the planet love the enormous range that Lucas’ fonts offer; they are attracted by their functionality and friendly appearance. Some also appreciate the idiosyncrasies – a quest for extremes that lead Luc(as) to the narrowest, thinnest, wittiest and fattest typefaces around.
