Dave is a signwriter and decorative reverse glass gold leaf artist. After leaving school at 16, he was classically trained through an apprenticeship with traditional signwriter Gordon Farr. He began creating fonts while designing logos, fueling his creativity and inspiring him to produce full alphabets. The tradition of designing letterfaces with a pencil gives him the freedom to be more flamboyant, while still retaining a very usable character to his fonts. Many of the fonts that Dave has designed grew out of individual words or phrases developed for his reverse glass work, which is the main thrust of his business these days. The design for this website was designed by Dave and speaks volumes about his love for decoration and embellishment.
