Frederik Berlaen is a typedesigner with a love for programming and scripting. After studying graphical design at Sint-lucas in Ghent, where he got the passion for pure black & white type, he went to study typedesign at the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague.

He successfully got a Master Degree at the postgraduate course Type & Media in 2006. His final project was not a typefamily but an application which studies the broadnip and pointed pen, called Kalliculator . The app could generate thousands of typefaces.

Frederik Berlaen works under the name of TypeMyType providing font services, programming and teaching at Sint Lucas Ghent and at ECAL in Lausanne.
