About me
I design custom fonts in close collaboration with my clients to provide a unique typographic solution. My expertise in type design has gained a reputation over the years, through my regular collaborations with type foundries, design studios and agencies. I am focused on delivering the highest standards in font production and mastering, partnering with engineers throughout my international network. Whether for a local business or large corporation, my work reinforces how the world perceives brands through custom fonts that make identities adaptive, multilingual, coherent, unique, flexible and recognisable all at once. I am a visiting lecturer at HBKSaar and LHÍ Reykjavík, where I teach type design. And as an active member of Alphabettes, a network to support and promote women in the type industry, I mentor and help professional newcomers. I have earned recognition and awards from D&AD (2019, wooden pencil), German Design Awards nominee (2015), ED Awards (2014, bronze), Typographica’s Best (2013 & 2014), Granshan (2013, 1st prize Arabic).
