Tim Brown is one of those unique people who can break down complex topics and make them understandable. And amid the explosion of font foundries and screen sizes, that’s just the kind of guide we designers need on our side.

Tim is a designer, writer, speaker, and toolmaker, with a focus on typography. As Head of Typography for Adobe Typekit and Adobe Type, he advises customers and partners, and produces Typekit Practice— a place where novices and experts alike can hone their typographic skills. Tim has spoken about typography to sold-out crowds at conferences around the world, and has written about CSS locks, type rendering on the web, and using OpenType features.

Prior to joining Typekit, Tim was a web designer at Vassar College, where he first developed his expansive knowledge of typefaces, their histories, and their unique characteristics. So his background spans designs for small to enterprise-level audiences, as you’ll soon learn for yourself.
