Rye grew up writing, drawing, and informing people that she was not named after the bread, whiskey, or grass. She was twelve when she wrote her favorite magazine to ask what font they used. They wouldn't tell her, but being the kind of bookworm who reads copyright pages, she eventually found the name in a book years later (take that, American Girl!). By that time her obsession with typography had culminated in a passion for all things design. When not seeking out the latest @font-face file, Rye is at the beach, on a bicycle, or reading something.
