Fontforecast was founded by Hanneke Classen in 2013 as a label of Storm Creative Consultancy (a Full Service Advertising Agency stationed in the Netherlands). She studied at the HAN, university of applied Sciences, in Nijmegen from 1980-1984. For a number of years she worked as a freelance designer in the broadest sense of the term. Via stage design, game concepts, illustrations and visualizing, she specialized in graphic design and desktop publishing. After working for an advertising agency, for international clients such as Volkswagen and Suzuki for many years, she eventually became partner at Storm Creative Consultancy. Here she dived into the world of type design, soon was hooked and started the font foundry Fontforecast as a separate label of Storm Creative Consultancy. She currently combines type design with her activities as a graphic designer.
