Sara is a Creative Type Director originally from Toronto, Canada. Originally a graphic designer, Sara’s increasing fascination with type forms eventually drew her to study typeface design at University of Reading in the UK. A reformed bookworm, her deepest inspiration as a designer is the experience of reading and her abiding interest is in creating typefaces which not only serve but also enrich that experience.
Prior to joining Monotype Sara played a part in nearly every H&Co typefaces as a designer and through her oversight of the type design team. She contributed to the development of Verlag, Chronicle, Gotham, Tungsten, Idlewild, Numbers, Sentinel, and Whitney, and played a formative role in the creation of Quarto, Ringside, and Decimal.
Her master’s dissertation at University of Reading sparked an ongoing project exploring the evolution of the sans serif in the types of the 19th century. Sara is also one of the founding instructors of the [email protected] Condensed certificate program.
