Paul continued his journey in type at the University of Reading, UK. There he gained experience in designing type for text and explored creating type for Devanagari script. He completed his Masters degree in 2008, with the distinction of Merit, and joined the Adobe type team in January 2009 as a typeface designer and font developer.
