Award-winning type designer Linnea Lundquist was a member of the type design and production team at Adobe Systems for twelve years. There she worked on design, production and testing of many of the world's most widely used typefaces, including Optima, Sabon, Adobe Caslon, Chaparral, Tekton, and numerous others.

She is expert in font production in various formats using various production tools, having worked closely with both designers and software engineers, and is experienced with the design and production of various glyph sets (Latin, Central European, Greek, Cyrillic, etc.).

Lundquist has an undergraduate degree from Rochester Institute of Technology in Printing Management and Technology. She studied calligraphy and book design under Hermann Zapf (designer of Optima, Palatino, Melior, and ITC Zapf Chancery) and typography with noted type historian Alexander Lawson. She has done graduate work in the Book Arts at Mills College and in Printing and Typographic History at UC Berkeley. An active calligrapher, she organized the 2001 exhibition, lecture series, and catalog for Zapfest: Calligraphic Type Design in the Digital Age.
