Silas Dilworth

Silas Dilworth cut his typographic teeth at T-26 many years ago, learning how not to run a digital font foundry. In 2005 he launched TypeTrust, an independent font distribution partnership with Neil Summerour, which transitioned to being Silas’ personal studio and foundry just last year. An obsessed EULA philosopher and artists’ rights proponent, Silas has built his business on strict licensing terms and fierce legal backing. With this emphasis on rights management, his type designs — most notably Heroic and Breuer — have become very profitable assets to a number of multinational corporations despite not even being very good fonts.
