ABOUT







Cynthia Batty

Cynthia Batty (formerly, Cynthia Hollandsworth) was born in Washington, DC in 1955 (MyFonts) or 1956. She studied at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, CA, and managed the department of type design and development at Agfa Compugraphic in Massachusetts. She was President of AlphaOmega, a design studio dedicated to typeface development. She was also the Director of Typeface Development at High Technology Solutions, in Poughkeepsie, New York. Currently (?), she is the vice-presdident of Simon&Schuster in New York. For a few years, she was Executive Director of ATypI, involved, in particular in the ATypI meetings in Vancouver and Prague.

Her typefaces show calligraphic influences:

  • Hiroshige (1986). Versions sold by Linotype and Adobe. Hiroshige was designed in 1986 by Cynthia Hollandsworth at AlphaOmega Typography, Inc. The typeface was originally commissioned for a book of woodblock prints by nineteenth-century Japanese artist Ando Hiroshige, whose work influenced many impressionist artists.
  • Pompeii Capitals (1995). Designed by Philip Bouwsma for ITC. It is unclear what Cynthia Hollandsworth's role was in the design.
  • Synthetica (1996). With Philip Bouwsma at Agfa.
  • ITC Tiepolo (1987). By Cynthia Hollandsworth and Arthur Baker at AlphaOmega.
  • Vermeer (1986).
  • Agfa Wile Roman (1990). Marketed by Monotype as Agfa Wile Roman and simply Wile.
