Nicole Dotin

Nicole Dotin is a typeface designer and partner at the Process Type Foundry, an independent type design studio based in Minnesota, USA. Although she has designed both retail and custom typefaces, she enjoys the varied activity of running a type foundry — doing everything from helping customers to speeding up production tasks via code. Back in 2018, she launched Alphacrit, a bi-monthly, online typeface critique session via the Alphabettes, sparking the online type crit revolution. She also co-founded Practica, a 14-week online type design course that gives students the opportunity to study typeface design within a rigorous and supportive environment. Nicole holds an MFA in visual studies from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and an MA in typeface design from the University of Reading, UK.
