An Evening with Jesse Ragan, Typeface Designer
Jesse has been designing letterforms for as long as he can remember, dating back to his childhood in North Carolina. He learned from the best how to make them into typefaces: as a student at Rhode Island School of Design, as an intern at Font Bureau, and as a full-time designer at Hoefler & Frere-Jones.
Since 2005, Jesse has worked independently in Brooklyn, developing typefaces and lettering for clients including Pentagram and House Industries. Among his many design credits are collaborative contributions to Gotham, Archer, and Omnes.
On this evening renowned typeface designer Jesse Ragan will reveal
the fundamental principles of his process, which he teaches at Type @Cooper, the postgraduate certificate program he co-founded in 2010. Examples from his work will include custom typefaces and lettering for The New York Public Library, The Museum for African Art, and St. Bartholomew’s Church.
