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.
- Jess McCarty is an American type designer and the proprietor of Magpie Paper Works. She also recently co-founded Rare Bird Fonts, a foundry is committed to increasing the visibility and participation of women in type design. Jess is a long-time TD member and active within the type community at large.
- 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.
- Ramiro Espinoza is an Argentinian type designer and proprietor of ReType. Also a KABK graduate, Ramiro now lives in The Hague and just published a book on Amsterdam’s distinctive shopfront lettering. Ramiro is an early TD adopter and has served as a moderator since before my tenure as Manager.
