Berton Hasebe

Berton Hasebe was born in 1982 and grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii. He moved to Los Angeles to attend Otis College of Art and Design, and graduated in 2005 with a BA in Communication Arts. In 2007 he moved to the Netherlands to study type design through the Type and Media masters course at The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague (KABK). His typeface Alda, designed while attending Type and Media, was awarded the 2008 judges pick from the Type Directors Club in New York. In the same year Alda was also selected by the Tokyo Type Directors Club to be included in its annual publication. Since 2008 he resides in New York and has been working with Commercial Type.

A short interview with Hasebe about his experiences at Type and Media is posted in our essays and interviews section.
