Christian Schwartz

Christian Schwartz was born in 1977 and grew up in a small town in New Hampshire. He attended Carnegie Mellon University, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, graduating in 1999 with a degree in Communication Design.

After graduation, Schwartz spent 3 months as the in-house type designer and "type expert" at MetaDesign Berlin, under the supervision of Erik Spiekermann. In January, 2000, he joined Font Bureau as a member of the full-time design staff. Near the end of 2000, Schwartz founded Orange Italic with Chicago-based designer Dino Sanchez, and left Font Bureau in August 2001 to concentrate full-time on developing this company. Orange Italic published the first issue of their online magazine at the end of 2001 and are releasing their first set of typefaces in the beginning of 2002.
