ABOUT







David Siegel

Educated at Stanford (M.Sc. in digital typography in 1985 under the supervision of Donald Knuth and Charles Bigelow) and before that at the University of Colorado at Boulder (undergraduate math degree in algorithms under Hal Gabow). Type designer. Creator of these architecturally-inspired type families:

  • Eaglefeather (1999, P22). David Siegel made Eaglefeather for the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, which owns various manuscripts of the beautiful lettering of this American artist and designer, 1867-1959. P22 Eaglefeather Pro is a large extension released in 2012. Codesigned with Carol Toriumi-Lawrence.
  • Tekton (1988, Adobe). Tekton was released by Adobe in 1989. Ideal for architectural writing, an OpenType family, called Tekton Pro, was released in 2000. Adobe lists Jim Wasco as a co-designer. The glyphs are based on the hand-lettering of Seattle-based architect and author Francis D.K. Ching.
  • Graphite (1991, FontBureau). Graphite (FontBureau, 1991) is a drafting letter based on the hand of San Francisco draftsman Anthony Celis LaRosa.
  • He worked with Hermann Zapf, trying to get Knuth's METAFONT program to produce beautiful typefaces. He worked again with Zapf on Zapfino.
His page has discussions on typography in general, and handwriting and architectural fonts in particular.

He heads Studio Verso, a site-design consultancy in San Francisco.

Author of The Euler project at Stanford Stanford, CA (1985, Stanford University, Department of Computer Science).
