Kris Sowersby

Typeface designer website

Kris Sowersby is your typical success story: he graduated from the Wanganui School of Design in 2003 and two years later began releasing commercial and custom typefaces under the brand Klim Type Foundry.

The twist? He took one elective in typeface design and taught himself the rest. Now he releases commercial fonts through online retailer Village, has designed custom type families for projects from the Financial Times to the Chatham Islands and has several coveted Best Design Awards.
