Creative Type Director
A New Type of Type: An Introduction To Variable Type
Sara Soskolne is a Creative Type Director at Monotype and was the Senior Designer at Hoefler&Co. As a reformed bookworm, her deepest inspiration as a typeface designer is the experience of reading, and her abiding interest is in creating typefaces which not only serve but enrich that experience.
Originally a graphic designer, Sara’s increasing fascination with type eventually drew her to study typeface design at the University of Reading in the UK, and then to practice it at Hoefler&Co. She played a part in nearly every H&Co typeface after her arrival there in 2005, both as a designer and later also through her oversight of the type design team — playing a particularly formative role in the design of Quarto, Ringside, and Decimal. An only partially reformed Torontonian living in New York, Sara still spells like a Canadian and can’t really think in Fahrenheit.
