Jon Tan is a designer and typographer who co-founded the web fonts service, Fontdeck.

He is a partner in Fictive Kin, where he works with friends making things like Brooklyn Beta and Mapalong.

His addiction to web typography has led him to start co-writing a book on the subject, and share snippets of type news via @t8y. He also writes for publications like 8 Faces and Typographica, speaks at international events, and works with such organisations as the BBC.

Jon is based in Mild Bunch HQ, the co-working studio he started in Bristol, UK. He can often be found wrestling with his two sons, losing, then celebrating the fact as @jontangerine on Twitter.
