PSU Faculty Travis Kochel was awarded a Fast Company Innovation By Design Award last night for his typeface Chartwell.

Chartwell, says Judge Nicholas Felton, “is an ingenious hack.” This easy-to-use tool could disrupt all manner of chart-making programs, thanks to a clever font system that turns chains of numbers into elegant charts. Tweaking a graph is as simple as changing a number.

Travis currently teaches a section of our Typography One class and is gearing up for teaching Typeface Design next quarter. Congrats Travis! SUPER JOB!
