Type Designer

Hidetaka is one of our Typeface Designers. Originally from Japan, he graduated from MA Typeface Design at the University of Reading with an undergraduate background in twentieth-century art and aesthetics at Kyoto University in Japan. He has been in typeface design since 2013, initially as a hobby, which has now become his occupation. He is also interested in translating German and English books on typography into Japanese.

In his spare time, Hidetaka always goes for a stroll to the city centre to find new things and enjoy tea time with his friends. He also loves cooking as well as reading Japanese books on poetry and the humanities.
