Akira Kobayashi

Akira Kobayashi is the Type Director at Monotype Library, based in Bad Homburg, Germany. “I mainly do two things,” he said in an interview with Planet Typography, "control the aesthetic quality of in-house typefaces, and select types submitted from external designers. 'Aesthetic’ by no means concerns only the shape of each letter, but also the shapes of words and sentences that the type may form.”
