Jonathan Barnbrook




Jonathan Barnbrook is best known as David Bowie’s favourite graphic designer having worked on the designs of his last four albums. However, he has had a long and distinguished career in type and graphic design as one of the original members of the »typographic new wave« – a 1990s international movement that rebelled against the modernist conventions of the 20th century in favour of the new freedom that the rise of technology and a revived interest in the vernacular offered. His typefaces Mason and Exocet quickly became part of the world’s visual language. Barnbrook continues to release fonts through his company Virusfonts. He also runs the design studio Barnbrook, which works with a mixture of cultural institutions, activist groups and charities.
