About Alanna Munro

My love and fascination with letterforms has been percolating since doodling bubble letters on my notebooks as a thirteen-year-old. In my early 20’s I went to Emily Carr University of Art + Design to study communication design and emerged even more curious about letterforms and their place in design. I am now an independent type designer and lettering artist making retail and custom typefaces through Alanna Munro Type Foundry – really clever name right?! In addition to fonts, I also make lettering pieces and create products featuring nice letters including stickers, cards, and even a book about being a huge letter nerd.

My letterform designs always start with a particular use in mind or a problem to solve and I like to explore a very wide variety of styles and solutions. The one thing that ties all my designs together is a phenomenon that has been described as ‘happy curves,’ meaning that no matter the style, a friendly disposition is always woven into the vector drawings. But don’t mistake friendliness for frivolity, I am also a huge nerd and my fonts are always executed with the highest technical care.

I’m always happy to help others out using any category of my knowledge; just check out one of my Type Design Live Streams and you’ll see me answering all kinds of questions from “What is a double storey ‘a’?” to “How do you manage to sort you kids socks when their feet are such a similar size?” Get in touch if you need anything, but until you do, I’m going to go play a little Stardew Valley while watching reruns of Star Trek 🖖
