Jeremy Mickel

Jeremy Mickel grew up in Ohio and studied at Indiana University. He moved to New York in 2001, and worked in several NYC design studios while continuing his design education at SVA, where he took his first typeface design class with the legendary Ed Benguiat. He published his first typeface with Village in 2008, and joined as a full foundry member in 2012.

His work has been honored by the Type Director’s Club and AIGA, and his typeface Router was included in “Graphic Design: Now In Production” at the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum and Walker Art Center.

The twitter modules in Typeface Specimens generate unique settings every time you visit. We’ve done our best to prevent objectionable material, but some things may sneak through - so let us know if you see something weird. 

In addition to the full-length tweets in the specimens, we’ve used Kenneth Ormandy's version of Word-O-Mat for single-word settings, and Craig Eliason Daily Pangram collection for typeface style overviews.
