My professional career began as a public school industrial arts teacher, trying to keep my young students from crushing their hands in the platen presses. Having to teach wood shop was the last straw and I quit and went to graduate school. After receiving an M.Ed in Technology Education, I studied lettering with Ed Benguiat, began drawing type and working in the wild world of New York City type shops and magazine art departments. My career continued as a magazine art director, moving on to become a design director responsible for 20 trade magazines whose subject matter no one should be required to remember. I was talked into designing pharmaceutical packaging, but that only made me ill. When my nausea subsided, I started Terminal Design, Inc. and I havn’t been sick since.

I am a past president of the Type Directors Club (TDC), and years ago I taught typography at Pratt Institute. I currently teach type design at Parsons The New School for Design and School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City. Read Less
Founded in 1990 by James Montalbano and located on the terminal moraine in Brooklyn NY, Terminal Design's typeface and lettering designs have been solving the most challenging typographic problems for some of the world’s most influential and iconic brand leaders in the media, fashion, and environmental industries.
Since 1995 I have been working on the Clearview type system for text, display, roadway and interior guide signage. Clearview has been featured in The New York Times, Print, Creative Review, ID, Wired, and is in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.
