Nina Stössinger, type-obsessed designer & overall curious person; Senior Typeface Designer at Frere-Jones Type. A more detailed bio is here.
I work at the intersection of form and language, design and technology. I make type, and write code to support the production and presentation of fonts. I love thinking about processes and playing with words and thoughts and new ideas; and I enjoy passing on my passion for type to others, through writing, speaking, and teaching.
