Before its formation, Michael Harvey had a very long and distinguished career as a lettercutter, a lettered bookjacket designer, type designer and teacher. He has designed numerous typefaces which have been published by Monotype, Adobe and the Dutch Type Library.
In contrast, Andy Benedek began his working life as a metallurgist — discovering the joy of lettering and font design later in life — and now earns his crust by drawing lettering and fonts for corporate and brand identities, magazines and newspapers.
Together as Fine Fonts, they possess all the necessary expertise for successful font design. The launch of Fine Fonts in 2000 was marked by the introduction of an entirely original display face, Aesop and that tradition has been maintained with later releases.
