Moderation is something that should be done, well, in moderation. Our hope is that you, the users of TypeDrawers, continue to hold enriching discussions while keeping the rules
in mind. However, there are instances where you might need assistance and so for those reasons we have moderators. These are the current moderators:
- James Todd is a type and graphic designer and proprietor of JTD in New York. Before typography, his exploits included bespoke tailoring and auto upholstery. (Really!) James is also one of the first TD members and became a moderator not long after its creation.
- Paul Hanslow is an Australian born type designer currently living in Vancouver Canada, learning the ropes while working for Tiro Typeworks. He holds an MA in Typeface Design from the University of Reading, UK, as well as a BA(Hons) in Visual Communication from Monash University, Australia. One of Paul’s main typographic interests is minority scripts and endangered writing systems.
- Eris Alar (he/him), is an Australian artist, graphic designer, and board game designer. He was a Type Camp Australia 2012 participant, and loves vintage type specimen books. Eris joined TypeDrawers when it launched, but only became part of the moderation team in 2021. He hopes to finish designing a typeface one day, but is primarily a type user and admirer.
