Mass-Driver is an independent studio for typeface design and font production, founded in early 2020 by Rutherford Craze.
The studio’s principle belief is in a deep understanding of the materials and technologies behind our work, from the software that builds a font to the paper on which it’s printed. Through intimately knowing the processes through which typefaces are made, we can produce work of better quality and functionality.
A type designer originally from the UK, Rutherford holds an MA in Type and Media from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, Netherlands, where he now lives.
Previously a graphic designer and a front-end developer, Rutherford’s interest in type is both technical and artistic — balancing a love of the visual craft with a fascination for the functional side of type design.
Mass-Driver commits 1% of revenue from sales to fund carbon removal via Stripe Climate. The studio is powered by 100% renewable electricity.
