Xiaoyuan Gao

Xiaoyuan Gao(CN) is a Rotterdam-based freelance graphic designer, image-maker, type designer and the initiator of “notyourtype foundry”. She loves experimenting with unconventional approaches to type design and typesetting. She sees type design (making custom characters into a font file) as making a tool for typing, just like a customized typewriter. She also enjoys creating visuals out of found images, which allows her to combine typography and imagery in playful ways.
