You go uncle Joe


Very proud of family this week. Joseph Churchward is a living legend of type having created no less than 654 fonts - all hand drawn in the old style - over a prodigious career littered with milestones. Joseph is Rachael's cousin, although her arm of the family calls him 'uncle.' This week he was presented with the Queens Service Medal as only the most prolific single type designer in the world should be. Joseph was born in Samoa but is proudly Wellingtonian and a super lovely man to boot. Here's the clip of the One News piece this week, you will see what we mean. Congratulations Joseph!
