For 20 years, Dyana has been working with clients across various industries such as Comedy Central, Disney, Ford, the MoMA, and The Washington Post. As Director of Custom Type, she manages and creates large families in traditional static and variable font formats. Previously, she was Senior Custom Designer at The Font Bureau, where she learned typeface design in the tradition of Merganthaler Linotype. Her approach to work is influenced by humanity itself: she aims to make genuine connections with clients, and believes that the most memorable designs are endearingly imperfect. She stretches her other creative muscles by writing for Typographica and Alphabettes, taking photographs, and promoting independent film. She stretches her literal muscles by hiking as often as she can.
