Jim Rimmer’s background includes years with hot metal type in the composing room, and in the operation of the Linotype and the Monotype. He continued designing and cutting faces in metal in concert with those that he designed for digital format on his Macintosh.
His experience in graphic design covered over 40 years, encompassing positions in advertising agencies and design studios. For more than 25 years he had the good fortune to experience the mixed blessings of freelancing as a letterer, designer, and illustrator.
