Dominic Le-Hair is a typography designer from the United Kingdom. His designs are influential because of his move away from printed typography and toward 3D, made typography. He is well known for his work with magnetic type, but also has created types using fire, steam and light, licorice, sugar and food dye. His work has a tactile quality, much of his work is created by using objects not usually associated with type and reworking them, something that is quite in vogue with typography now - i.e. the push for typgographers to move away from digital type again, letter press and other designers such as Anna Garforth.
