As a writer, educator, and typevangelist, I have been a link between type makers and type users for my entire career. I have the interests of both groups equally at heart and always strive to find common ground.

Yves Peters is a graphic designer/rock drummer/father of three who tries to be critical about typography without coming across as a snob. Yves started reviewing type in his Bald Condensed column on Typographer.org and came to prominence as editor-in-chief for the international design and typography blog The FontFeed. He worked primarily for FontShop for a decade, then Monotype, MyFonts, and Type Network. He currently writes as a freelancer for Adobe as well as for a few independent foundries and teaches at the Artevelde University of Applied Sciences. His activism led to the creation of the Adobe Typography Customer Advisory Board where he joined other specialists advising Adobe’s development teams on improving the typographic interfaces of the Creative Cloud apps. His talent for being able to identify most typefaces on sight is utterly useless in daily life.
