Yves Peters is a graphic designer/rock drummer/father of three who tries to be critical about typography without coming across as a snob. Yves started reviewing type in his Bald Condensed column on Typographer.org and came to prominence as editor-in-chief for the international design and typography blog The FontFeed. After working primarily for FontShop for a decade and Type Network, he now writes for Adobe Create and the Adobe Fonts Blog, as well as various independent type foundries. Yves regularly speaks at typography, graphic design, and web design conferences. His activism led to the creation of the Adobe Typography Customer Advisory Board where he joined other specialists advising Adobe’s development teams on improving the typographic interfaces of the Creative Cloud apps. His talent for being able to identify most typefaces on sight is utterly useless in daily life.
