Jeremy Mickel runs a design studio in Brooklyn, New York, but lives in Providence, RI. Originally called Mickel Design, the studio and foundry was renamed MCKL in 2012.

He is working on this VAR-Rounded sans serif style face (2007) that was based on plastic cut letters seen in New York's subway. See also here and here. Mickel's typefaces:

  • Router (2008, Jeremy Mickel): a rounded sans family.
  • Baro (2010, Chester Jenkins and Jeremy Mickel): Baro is inspired by memories of Antique Olive Nord, Roger Excoffon's landmark design originally commissioned for Air France in 1956. Nord, the heaviest weight of Antique Olive, was the starting point, but Baro shares DNA with other Village designs, including Apex New and Mavis.
  • Eventide (2009, Jeremy Mickel): octagonal and 3d family based on ideas by Paul Carlyle in the early 1940s. That Carlyle face had also made it into the PhotoLettering collection in 1971. Eventide was developed into a family at House Industries under the art direction of Ken Barber and Christian Schwartz, and won an award at TDC2 2011.
  • Superior (2010, Jeremy Mickel): a high-contrast transitional "nearly didone" face. Superior Title (2013) is described as a high-contrast missing link between Times and Bodoni. It was designed for fashion publications.
  • Shift (2010, Jeremy Mickel): a slab serif family that won an award at TDC2 2011.
  • Gonesh (2009, Jeremy Mickel): a great new sans family.
  • Aero (2010, Village Type) was developed in cooperation with Chester Jenkins. This poster family, inspired by Excoffon's Antique Olive, was awarded at TDC2 2011.
  • Letterboxes (2008). A stencil face that was part of a collaborative project with John Caserta at the Design Office.
  • Union (2011). A basic sans family, ideal for corporate design.
  • Jeremy Mickel created a digital version L.H. Copeland's (prismatic, beveled, roman caps) Trillium typeface [originally done at Photolettering] in 2011 at the new digital Photolettering / House Industries.
  • Fort is a sans family published in 2012 by Village.
