ABOUT







Type Culture [Mark Jamra]

Advertised as Mark Jamra's Portland, ME-based digital type foundry and an academic resource. There is an extremely useful research directory, a great jump point for learning about type and its history. The site also has useful articles such as Jamra's article on optical image support and his article on form and proportion in a typeface. Mark Jamra (b. 1956) lives in Portland, Maine, where he designs type and teaches letterform and graphic design at the Maine College of Art. He did postgraduate work at the Basel School of Design, Switzerland, 1980-83, then worked for URW in Hamburg (where he lived for 12 years), and set up Jamra Design there. He left Germany in 1995.
