Jim Ford (b.1981) is a professional type designer and visual artist. He studied art and design at Columbia College Chicago, earning a BFA in Graphic Design in 2005.

Jim began his type career at Ascender. After years of development as a type designer, he worked as a freelance graphic artist under the alias Rebeletter. It was during this time that he developed his collage techniques, gradually moving toward abstraction and mixed media.
