San Francisco

Stephen Coles is a writer, editor, and typographic consultant who is particularly obsessed with the relationship between font makers and users, and he frequently advocates for the interests of both groups.

After six years at FontShop as a creative director, he now publishes the websites Fonts In Use and Typographica, writes for type foundries, and helps various organizations choose and use fonts. Stephen is author of the book The Anatomy of Type and a member of the FontFont TypeBoard. He splits his time between his girlfriend’s home in Berlin and his cat’s home in Oakland.
