Tiffany Wardle de Sousa
Tiffany Wardle de Sousa, "Typegirl," is a typographer and graphic designer currently living and working in San Jose, California. After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in graphic design from Brigham Young University, she worked in magazine design in New York City. However, the drone of the rat race was too much and the call of teaching was too strong, so she returned to her native Utah to teach as an adjunct professor in graphic design at BYU. After a few years, Wardle de Sousa changed her life once again when she found she couldn't resist the lure of graduate school, and promptly moved to Reading, England and earned her Master of Arts in the theory and history of typography and graphic communication. She hasn't looked back since. Her words have been published in STEP Inside Design, Interrobang, Indie Fonts 3 and TypeCulture. She has been a board member for the Society of Typographic Aficionados and a contributing volunteer for the Association Typographique Internationale.
