Originally based in London, Jamie Clarke specializes in illustrative type and lettering. “My aim is to bring words to life and make them more vivid with decoration and imagery. They can be fun or serious, as long as they enhance the message.” This goal eventually gave rise to his eye-catching debut font, Brim Narrow.
With a background in web design, Jamie was previously Head of Design for Europe at Microsoft. He went on to form one of the UK’s top digital agencies, where he worked with a range of well-known media and technology clients.
After ten years at the agency, Jamie decided to retrain. He studied Type Design at Reading University, and Letterpress at the St. Bride Foundation in London.
He also runs the popular blog, Type Worship and is part of the team behind the typography magazine, 8 Faces.
Jamie is currently living in Sydney, where he is expanding his collection of lettering projects and typefaces.
