Creating a better you.

Northwest Institute of Type & Design was established to fill the void in current design education. With too much emphasis on the technical aspects of the applications, we noticed the basics were being neglected. Our programs focus on solid layout principles, proper lettering and font design along with teaching designers how to communicate better with their clients. Whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned veteran, we’ll give you the skills you need to improve your game. We’re all about creating a better you.

Chuck began his career as a published cartoonist while still in high school, eventually moving on to sign painting and then web design. Chuck created his first font as an experiment in 1998 and was hooked. Shortly thereafter, he founded Letterhead Fonts in order to offer unique, vintage typefaces to other professionals.
