Jim Wasco, a second generation lettering designer, began his lifelong passion for lettering when his father taught him calligraphy at the age of 12. It was this knowledge, along with his illustration skills, that formed the fundamentals for the California-based type design business he founded in 1974. Jim later spent 13 years in the Type Department at Adobe. Currently Jim is a senior type designer at Monotype. A few of his designs are Elegy, Harmonia Sans and Neue Aachen.
