Chris Costello

Chris Costello is a graphic designer, website designer, illustrator and typographer working in Boston, Massachusetts — his foundry is simply called Chris Costello. In 1983, he designed the popular font Papyrus for Letraset and has since produced Blackstone, Letterpress Text, Virus and Mirage.

With over 20 years experience in publishing and advertising, he continues to create hand-rendered drawings, maps, and lettering for clients including Simon & Schuster, Random House, IBM, The New York Yankees, Encyclopedia Britannica and Scholastic Press.

“Designing typefaces is a labor of love for me. After handlettered book and magazine titles for several major publishers, I thought it would be cool to produce complete character sets from some of these designs...”

Chris earned a B.S. Degree in Graphic Design and Visual Communication from Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts and an A.A.S. Degree in Commercial Art from Dutchess Community College in Poughkeepsie, New York. He is now employed as Creative Director for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage and is also an accomplished bass player, a Black Belt in Tae-Kwon Do, a devoted husband and a father of two beautiful daughters.
