Jacques Le Bailly landed his first commercial type job while studying Graphic Design at the Royal Art Academy of Art in The Hague. The typographer Rudo Hartman asked him to digitize drawings of capitals for a special publication. During an exchange semester in Germany, he did an internship at Linotype GmbH (now Monotype), for whom he has been doing freelance work ever since. After finishing his studies, he worked as a graphic designer in Berlin. On returning to The Netherlands, he started working for The Enschedé Type Foundry as a type designer, and has been teaching at the WdKA art academy in Rotterdam and Sint Joost in Den Bosch. After three years as a senior designer at Studio Bauwinkel, he started his own company Baron von Fonthausen in 2009 now focussing on type design. Besides his personal projects, he is working for type foundries like Lineto, Monotype, House Industries, and Bold Monday, as well as on custom projects for several brand design agencies.
