About:

Kitchen Table Type Foundry is run by Dutchman David Kerkhoff.

David Kerkhoff was born in 1969, in Vaassen – The Netherlands. He studied journalism, decided that it wasn’t his cup of tea and went on a backpacking trip around the world. He hitch-hiked around South Africa, picked lychees and avocados in Australia, worked in an outdoor store in New Zealand, spend a good five years in Israel (and almost got married there) and returned home completely broke. He applied for a job as a tour guide and found himself aboard the Trans-Siberian Express a few weeks later, guiding a group of 20 people.

A decade later he met his wife, who also worked as a tour guide. When their first son was born, David turned his hobby into his job and started making fonts for a living.

Besides making fonts, David is a bit of a blacksmith and loves hammering steel into various tools and knives. He lives in a hamlet alongside the Rhine river with his wife Stephanie and his three young kids Sam, Yuli and Boris.

David also runs Hanoded Fonts
