Sebastian Lester

“There is just something magical about type,” says designer Sebastian Lester. “If you design a successful typeface it can travel the world, taking a part of you with it.”

Lester began his career with letters after graduating with honors from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. The first few years he spent designing for the music and games industries, dabbling in 3D animation and designing type for the likes of T-26 and Garage Fonts. Then, in 2000, Lester joined Monotype Imaging. He recalls, “I remember thinking that I might have a good chance of getting an interview. I had a passion for type, a solid knowledge of current trends in design and a body of work that hopefully showed some raw potential.”

Scene was Lester’s first commercial typeface family created for the Monotype Imaging typeface library. This was followed by the Neo Sans and Neo Tech families.

When not designing type, Lester also enjoys other creative pursuits: illustration and music. “I love good Drum and Bass and House music. It’s a source of a lot of inspiration.”
