Hello fellow internet explorers. My name’s Jake and I design & 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 Bristol, in the UK.
I drink lots of coffee, mostly from Pact, and my beer of choice is an American style IPA. When I’m not staring at a screen I enjoy getting out on my bike. I collect design and typography magazines & books, and occasionally even get round to reading them.
Like many web designers/developers, I am lucky enough to really enjoy what I do for a living — so much so that I often work on similar style projects outside of work. These side projects are for little monetary gain and mostly for the enjoyment of learning new techniques and honing skills.
