About Jonathan Checkley

I have vast experience across most areas of advertising and design production. Having trained in graphic design and typography, I’ve worked as a typographer, designer, artworker, studio manager, production director and project manager…

I am passionate about typography and lettering and have a very sharp eye for detail. Thorough and reliable, I’m always happy to “muck in” and do what is necessary to deliver 'more than the client is expecting'.

After many years of print experience, I have, of course, been working with digital formats for the last few years. I have also moved in the opposite direction by developing my calligraphic and lettering skills. I have recently added bespoke picture framing to my list of skills. I offer this service as Letters and Frames.

I am a Past President and Honorary Life Member of the Typographic Circle and I am a member of the International Society of Typographic Designers (MISTD), Chartered Society of Designers (MCSD), Letter Exchange, the Society of Scribes and Illuminators and The North London Lettering Association. Letters and Frames is a member of the Fine Art Trade Guild.

I am also chairman of a new build community project in my home town, which has taken me into new and challenging areas.

Specialties: typographic design, artwork (print and digital), production, quality control, project management, client services, calligraphy, lettering, bespoke picture framing.
