Default Jos Buivenga & his type designs

Dutch type designer Jos Buivenga is featured in this month’s “Creative Characters: The faces behind the fonts” at MyFonts.

The self-taught designer, an advertising art director during the day, began by giving away his early fonts — Delicious and Fontin. Even when he began to sell, he gave away extra weights of Museo. That face took off, and when the ad agency closed, Buivenga became a full-time type designer.

Nice bio at My Fonts, and a look at his typefaces.
