David grew up in the city of Manchester, UK. He studied Graphic Design at The University of Salford and and Typeface Design at The University of Reading. David launched a foundry from his home city and spends most of his days researching and designing typefaces or riding bikes in the rain. Manchester Type produces type and typography that serves European, Middle Eastern, Indian, and South-East Asian writing systems.
Now-and-again David shares his ideas through writing and teaching. He also loves to talk about typeface design within the design community at home and abroad, for institutions, for firms, or simply with friends.
