Tré Seals


Tré is one of those rare individuals that became what he wanted to be as a child. From kindergarten to third grade, he would bounce between drawing, religiously, and practicing writing in cursive until he could get his handwriting to look like the sample sheets.

In the 5th and 6th grade, Seals would graffiti people’s names on index cards and sell them for $3 apiece. In high school and college, he would design bead jewelry, Lego™ jewelry, tattoos, posters, and t-shirts.

And at the age of 22, he started a passion project turned font foundry, Vocal Type. With the mission of diversifying design (through type), Seals has crafted a catalog of fonts that tell the stories of various underrepresented races, ethnicities, and genders—from the Women’s Suffrage Movement in Argentina to the Civil Rights Movement in America. And the rest is history.
