About Jamie Clarke

I design illustrative lettering and decorative typefaces. I aim to enhance text with imagery and eye-catching typography, ideal for branding, packaging, editorial and advertising.

With a background in web design, I was previously Head of Design at Microsoft, Europe. I went on to form one of the UK’s top digital agencies, where I worked with a range of well-known media and technology clients. After ten years with my agency, I decided to retrain. I studied Type Design at Reading University, and Letterpress at the St. Bride Foundation in London.

I’m usually based in London but I’m currently living in Sydney, working  on custom lettering projects and my own type designs. My typefaces are available to use via Adobe Typekit or to buy at MyFonts.

Further information

I also run the popular blog, Type Worship, exploring the endless styles and trends leading the type and lettering world. I’m part of the team behind the typography magazine, 8 Faces, created by Elliot Jay Stocks, and I’ve written about type for several other publications.
