Carol Twombly (1959-) studied architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design, and went on to become one of the five students to get master’s degrees in type design from Charles Bigelow at Stanford. Twombly briefly worked for Bigelow as well. Her typeface Mirarae won the Morisawa type design competition, and was produced by Bitstream. She worked for Adobe Systems from 1988-99, producing many well-known typefaces, including Lithos, Trajan, and Adobe Caslon. She retired from type design and left Adobe in 1999 to do other crafts, such as textile-based design and jewellery.
