David Jonathan Ross draws letters of all shapes and sizes for retail and custom typeface designs. He makes fonts that challenge you to set your work apart by going beyond the generic workhorses and confronting the unique visual and technical demands of your text.
He enjoys working in a variety of styles, but designs each of his fonts to solve a specific problem. That specificity is what defines his work, along with a little craftsmanship and a dash of the unexpected.
He is originally from Los Angeles, but I started making fonts during his time at Hampshire College. After working with The Font Bureau, he now publishes his work on DJR font foundry as well as working on projects with Type Network and developing display faces for his Font of the Month Club. He lives with his partner, Emily, and two dogs, Sophie and Lily in Western Massachusetts.
