Tobias is working on making type and typography accessible and available to everyone, everywhere as Design Lead for Google Fonts.
After co-founding Google Fonts as a 20% project in 2010, he also worked on other projects like Material Design and the Google Store before returning to the team.
As a web designer in the early 2000s he lived through the browser wars, converted from spacer GIFs to CSS layouts and discovered webfonts with @font-face. Since then he's been passionate about making the web more diverse, localised and beautiful by making typography something that everyone has access to. He's lived and worked in London, New York and San Francisco and has recently returned to face Berlin's long and grey winters.
