Yves is a graphic designer / copywriter / rock drummer / feminist / antiracist / savior of tiny kittens who tries to be critical about typography without coming across as a snob.
He started reviewing type in his Bald Condensed column on Typographer.org and came to prominence as editor-in-chief for the international design and typography blog The FontFeed. Starting in 2008, Yves worked primarily for FontShop for a decade (Monotype and MyFonts after 2014), then Type Network.
He currently writes as a freelancer for Adobe as well as for independent type foundries. Yves teaches at the Artevelde University of Applied Sciences’s Journalism and Graphic Design & Digital Media departments. His activism led to the creation of the Adobe Typography Customer Advisory Board where he joined other specialists advising Adobe’s development teams on improving the typographic interfaces of the Creative Cloud apps.
His talent for being able to identify most typefaces on sight is utterly useless in daily life.
