Nick Cooke

I have worked for myself since 1999, when I set up my own type foundry, G-Type. My first retail typeface was published in 1997 with Fontshop International. All font designs are completely original.

With over 20 years of experience and expertise I am at the height of my creative powers, and am proficient in all genres of type design including Sans, Serifs, Slabs, Handwriting and Scripts which require more complicated programming to make them convincing as handwriting. I like to keep my finger on the typographic pulse and know what is current, but I do not follow trends as they can be short-lived. I prefer to strive for originality.

Retail typefaces, some of which have been adopted as corporate fonts used by;

The Royal Mail/The Post Office, The SKF Group (worldwide), Jury’s Inn, London Midland, Visa, Nectar, Scottish Power, Yorkshire and Clydesdale Banks, Nadra Bank (Russia, Cyrillic version), Manitoba Power

Custom corporate typefaces I have designed for;

Vauxhall, RAC, Mail On Sunday, O2, Nicorette, Tesco Finest, Cadbury’s, Timcot
