Kolofon is owned and run by graphic designer Graeme Rodrigo. Graeme was born in Melbourne, Australia. After studying Graphic Design at Swinburne University of Technology, he began his career in Melbourne at Lancashire Blenheim Design [1996–99] under the guidance of partners Steve Blenheim and David Lancashire, member Alliance Graphique Internationale. Following this apprenticeship, he relocated to London and developed his career as a freelance designer at studios including Conran Design Group, Imagination, Landor, Pocknell Studio, Roundel, SAS, The Team, Trickett & Webb and 300million amongst others.
He founded his own practice in London 2011, and relocated to Copenhagen with his family shortly afterwards where he now works with a talented network of artists, writers, designers & photographers. His work, characterised by a strong bias towards typography, has been recognised by D&AD  & Le Club des Directeurs Artistiques [2013, 2022], featured in Eye and Monocle journals, and published by Thames & Hudson. He has given talks on typography and visual culture at the Copenhagen School of Design and Technology [KEA] and co-designed a global bestseller for Penguin Random House about cooking with a hangover.
