Hi, I’m Jake. I design and make things mostly for the web. I’m passionate about type and typography—especially pushing typography in browser to produce great reading experiences. I work at Typekit and I’m based in the lovely Bristol, in the UK.
I like my coffee from Pact & my beer of choice is a hoppy IPA. Off screen I enjoy getting out on my bike, and whenever possible going skiing. I collect typography and design magazines & books, and occasionally get round to reading them.
I graduated from the University of Reading, where I studied Graphic Communication, this time last year. I would like to share some insight into the transition into the real world from my experience from around and since my graduation. Hopefully this will be useful, to someone at least, but if not it’s quite therapeutic to look back on the last year.
