Spike Spondike.
Senior Type Designer

In her words.

Most typefaces are designed to not be noticed — I love making the ones that shout!

Spike Spondike is an award-winning Senior Typeface Designer at Monotype. Her experience includes almost a decade working with Dalton Maag, and the past two years with Colophon Foundry.

She has worked with global agencies designing typefaces for some of the biggest names we know.  Originally from the USA, Spike gained a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from the University of Cincinnati, studied Graphic Design Foundation at the Academy of Art University (San Francisco), and earned a Master’s Degree in Creative Practice for Narrative Environments at Central Saint Martins (London).

Spike is infatuated with container ships, enjoys DJing, making noise on her synthesisers,  field recording, and creating luscious soundscapes.
