Rob Keller graduated from the University of Illinois, receiving bachelor degrees in graphic design and sculpture. His strong interest in type led him to the University of Reading, where he earned a master’s degree in typeface design and developed a new passion for non-Latin typography. He then moved to Germany and spent a year at Linotype where he met his future wife, Sonja. They moved to Berlin and created the type foundry Mota Italic in 2009. Here they are currently developing extensive new type families – especially fonts with wide language support and multiple scripts.
