Muthu Nedumaran has nearly four decades of experience in designing typefaces for complex scripts. Through his work in fonts and input methods, he revolutionized the Tamil printing landscape in Malaysia and Singapore, seeing the migration of all daily newspapers, magazines and books to his digital typefaces.
Muthu has developed numerous typefaces, fonts and input methods over two dozen languages across South Asian and South East Asian scripts. His works are bundled into iOS and macOS and some Android devices and thus used on iPhones, iPads, Android devices and Apple Watches. His fonts and input methods are also used as the standard for Tamil text by the Ministries of Education in Singapore and Malaysia.
Muthu holds a Master of Research in Typeface Design from the University of Reading and is the author of Hibizcus, a font proofing and debugging tool for complex script fonts.
