Hi, I’m Terrance.
I'm a Type Designer working with Monotype, and I've been dedicated to designing typefaces, lettering, and typography since 2008. I'm focused on custom font projects for Monotype's clients. Along with the font development team at Monotype, I've worked on fonts for: Microsoft, Google, Barnes & Noble, and Domino's, as well as various design firms, ad agencies, and publishers.
I've had the honor to contribute to the ubiquitous Open Sans and Segoe UI typefaces, among many others. My latest retail releases are Joanna Sans Nova and the expansive Kairos family. I also have a few revivals like Romany, JMC Engraver and Feldman Engraver. I've spoken to audiences at TypeCon, AIGA, and the Game Developers Conference about type design and typography.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in Graphic Design from Grand Valley State University. I like to continue my education, and refresh my interest in type by attending conferences, workshops and lectures. I attended the Type Design short course at the University of Reading in 2013, where I focused on Greek and Cyrillic scripts.
