Kyle Read

Kyle Read is a 25 year old designer hailing from the American Northeast. Making letters since he was a kid, type has always been a natural interest for Kyle. After identifying and focusing his propensity for type while studying Graphic Design and Printmaking at the Savannah College of Art and Design, he has gone on to create fonts for various brands and corporations, most recently for Abercrombie & Fitch in Columbus, Ohio.

Naturally self-motivated, Kyle has always been inspired by typography as it continuously informs his design career; now adding the Type@Cooper Extended Type Design Program in New York to his CV. Kyle has his sights set on a career in Type Design and is always ready for the next challenge.

Kyle spends his free time on grand lettering projects, traveling, and getting outside. It wouldn’t be surprising to find him in a coffee shop consuming something chocolate, exploring the roads of America, relaxing at a baseball game, developing his Brooklyn-based swimwear brand, or creating something sweet for dessert in the kitchen.
