Jesse Ragan

Originally from North Carolina, Jesse Ragan learned to create typefaces while at Rhode Island School of Design. He studied both modern digital techniques and the fundamentals of punchcutting, concurrently. One craft is relatively young; one endured for four centuries after the invention of movable metal type. This experience cultivated his belief that artisanship should transcend technology.

After college, Jesse designed typefaces at Hoefler & Frere-Jones, where he had a hand in Gotham, Archer, and many other families. Since 2005, he has worked independently in Brooklyn, developing typefaces and lettering for a variety of clients. His work can be found in the retail libraries of Font Bureau, House Industries, and Darden Studio. He also teaches typeface design at Pratt Institute and Cooper Union.
