About Jeremy Church

As a kid I didn’t want to work on a computer and sit behind a desk all day when I grew up, but later realized working on computers wasn’t as boring as I initially thought. Now I code. I learn. I design products. I write. I build things on computers, with people, for people. And it feels good.

I like coffee and letters. Shocking, right? Staring at the letterforms of a good typeface can be invigorating or peaceful, and sometimes both at once.

Recently I’ve been restoring and building a custom bike from a 1979 Yamaha XS750. I had zero mechanical experience when I started, so it’s been challenging, but a lot of fun and rewarding as things progress. The project is nearly complete, and I’m excited to see the results which I’ll share here at some point.

Page headers are set in Acta Poster by DSType Foundry. It was initially designed for a Chilean newspaper in 2010. Acta Poster is reminiscent of ultra, display typefaces from the 1970s. Source: Typographica; Served from: Typekit.

Subheaders are set in Roboto, a grotesque typeface by Google’s Christian Robertson. The font was designed in 2012, and since then Google has released a new version with plans to actively develop the typeface. Source: Google Developers Blog; Served from: Google Fonts.

Body text is set in Lato by Polish designer Łukasz Dziedzic. It started as a project for a corporate client, and was later released under the Open Font License in 2010. Its creator, Łukasz, says Lato is “Male and female, serious but friendly. With the feeling of the Summer.” Source: Google Fonts; Served from: Google Fonts.
