Ben Jones.
Senior Font Engineer.

Born in the UK, Ben Jones spent his formative years in Switzerland before returning to England to study Typography at the University of Reading. After completing the course, Ben’s focus increasingly shifted towards type design, eventually leading to his completion of the MA Typeface Design course at the University of Reading in 2011.

During the same year, Ben joined Monotype where he currently works as a Senior Font Engineer and occasional type designer. Ben designed Joanna Nova as part of the Eric Gill series and his typeface Amrys (originally Emrys), won first and second place respectively in the Greek and Armenian categories in the 2011 Granshan competition.
