Jonathan Hill

Jonathan is the founder of The Northern Block and known to wider people in the North as the ‘Fontman’.

He began his type design odyssey in the industrial mill towns of Yorkshire surrounded by historic textiles, modern art and the no-nonsense voice of the people. A Draughtsmen at heart with a passion for function, modernism and the understated Jonathan has shaped out a career designing typefaces that are respected and recognised by trusted brands, leading video game developers and global manufacturing companies.

Recently his type designs have received international awards as some of the most innovative work in the industry, and with his dedication to connecting, mentoring and nurturing new type design talent, his influence is set to grow stronger.
