FIVE OF THE WORLD'S MOST EXCITING DESIGN TALENTS.
From an innovative font designer in Rhode Island to the new poster girl of Finnish design, we meet five of the world's most exciting design talents.
CYRUS HIGHSMITH TYPOGRAPHER, PROVIDENCE
Cyrus Highsmith, a Wisconsin native, first joined Boston’s highly influential Font Bureau foundry in 1997 as a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). Less than two decades later, he has become one of North America’s most important and expressive typographers. In an industry that has rapidly been overtaken by computer screens and pixels, Highsmith’s audacious, animated style and uniquely artistic design process have won him a legion of fans, including print newspaper guru Mario García, who calls him “one of today’s most dynamic and original voices in American type design.”
