Laurence has worked as a consultant to the world of digital fonts since 1994. From 1999 most of that work has been for MyFonts; he was a key adviser and developer getting the business up & running. Now he signs up foundries, creates back-end tools, writes & polishes marketing materials, and advises on future directions for MyFonts. With the rise of webfonts, appreciation for his old expertise in TrueType hinting – recently considered a dying art – is back in vogue, and is being put to good use in MyFonts’ webfont offerings. Laurence lives & works in Bristol and Berlin, dividing his time between (web)font hacking, cartography hacking, and music gigs.
