Creative Type Director, Monotype Imaging Inc.

A 1988 graduate of the School of Printing at Rochester Institute of Technology, Steve found his passion for type and typography among the historic collections of books, metal type, type-casting equipment and printing presses. In 1990 Steve was hired by Monotype Typography as a contractor to aid in the production of Microsoft’s first TrueType fonts. Having already spent over two years mastering the hinting algorithms of a similar technology for another company, TrueType was an easy transition, and produced fonts for OEM customers such as Apple, Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft. Working on the technical aspects of type helped fuel Steve’s ambition to design new typefaces. He completed a handwriting design called Andy and a revival of Frederic Goudy’s Truesdell in 1993. These were quickly followed by a screen font design for main frame terminal emulation (Andalé), Blueprint, Fineprint, Binner Gothic, Goudy Ornate, and user interface fonts for the original Xbox, Windows Vista and the Android OS.
