About Kenneth

Kenneth Ormandy is an independent designer specialising in web typography. Based in Vancouver, he organises Type Brigade, one of the best-attended type meetups in North America. He regularly contributes to The Lost Type Co-op, where his typeface Implicate will be available this year.

At conferences including TypeCon, CascadiaJS, and CSS Conf Australia, Kenneth has spoken on the relationship between design history and the web. Previously, he worked on the popular front-end development tools Surge.sh and Harp. Before that, he was the in-house designer for one of Canada’s largest boardgames store.

He graduated from Emily Carr University of Art + Design in 2015, and is attending Type@Paris this summer.

Email Kenneth or say hello on Twitter.


Kenneth speaks about design and typography on the web—sometimes about meticulously cutting identical black-and-white paper squares, and other times he’s reenacting the prayers of a mid-16th century Parisian. If that sounds weird in a good way, email him about speaking at your event.
