Joe Newton: Head of Type
Joe's now got the best title in the industry--"Head of Type" at Veer. He's they guy who makes those great little font specimens you see on the Veer site, and more importantly, Joe is the curator of the Veer font collection. But in case you didn't know, in his spare time, Joe designs type and does some pretty swell illustrations (and is available to do them for your publication...).
"As a graphic designer," says Joe, "I have been working with type for 20 years, and thought myself a pretty decent typographer. So I was amazed upon taking on this job to find layers of detail I had never imagined. Type seems to be an infinitely detailed universe. And of course, how amazing is it to have access to all the new releases from some of the world's greatest foundries?"
