Jason Tselentis

Jason teaches graphic design and typography at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina. He developed an interest in typography during grade school calligraphy classes, and began analyzing fonts in comic books, science fiction, calculus texts, classic literature, and film titles. He created his own titling type using the Macintosh Plus at the ripe age of 11. Jason's admiration for typography wreaked havoc when he ran the 2001 Lincoln City Marathon and placed a disappointing 402nd out of 806 because type on billboards, T-shirts, and advertising distracted him. He's jogged fourteen times since then, but has not run competitively. In his spare time, Jason plays Jenga, and remains unbeaten.

He is the author of Type, Form & Function and Typography Referenced.
