Font families (1)
Christopher Burke (England, 1967) is a typographer, font designer and theorist of modern typeface history. He graduated in Typography and Graphic Communication from the University of Reading and, after working for Monotype Typography, obtained his doctorate from the same university. Between 1996 and 2001 he was a professor at the University of Reading, where he programmed and designed the master's degree in typography design.
Christopher's multi-faceted profile has allowed him to get to know the typography from different perspectives: its history, use, and design. As a typeface designer, he began his career in the early 1990s, when he decided that his academic project would be to create a typeface. Over the years, based on his extensive knowledge, he managed to give shape to the typographies that today form part of his catalogue.
Specialist in the design of typographies for continuous text, he is the creator of Pragma ND, a typeface family of dry stick and narrow structure that includes eight fonts.
