Will Hill (b. Tokyo, 1954) is a typographer, designer, educator and visual artist with a background in graphic design and illustration, whose work is concerned with type, letters and the visual properties of language. Much of this work deals with the typography of environment and architecture. In 2006, he completed an MA in Typeface Design at the University of Reading. This included the design of a dual Latin/Cyrillic typeface, and a dissertation exploring aspects of postmodernity in typographic revivals.
