About Jeff Barlow
Jeff Barlow’s passion for typography (or is it a scary obsession?) comprises a large part of his design identity and is reflected in all of the work he creates. His poster work and ideas have been featured in the HOW International Design Annual, the HOW Self-Promotion Annual, and Communication Arts. His design experience includes work for Starbucks, Expedia, InfoSpace, National MS Society, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and Disney.

To say Jeff's design enthusiasm is contagious would be an understatement. He has shared his love of design, concept, and typography with anyone who will listen, from individuals to large groups. He is a creative manager at Starbucks Global Creative, and was principal and creative director at Jelvetica here in Seattle. He also recently finished his role as President of AIGA Seattle.


Type:Rider is an adventure puzzle game, produced by AGAT – EX NIHILO and ARTE, that brings gaming experience to a whole new daring level.

Immerse yourself in the history of typography by playing as two dots that travel through the ages of typographic styles and techniques. From the rock paintings of prehistoric times to pixel art of the 2000s, solve all the riddles by riding the most popular fonts and characters (Garamond, Helvetica, Times New Roman, Pixel, Comic Sans...) in a captivating musical and visual environment.
