Source Serif 4 is a serif typeface in the transitional style, designed to complement Source Sans. Their close companionship is achieved by a careful match of letter proportions and typographic color. While designed to harmonize with its serif-less counterpart, Source Serif often takes its own direction, in part because the two are inspired by different historical precedents. Source Serif is loosely based on the work of Pierre Simon Fournier, and many idiosyncrasies typical to Fournier’s designs (like the bottom serif on the b or the middle serif on the w) are also found in Source Serif. Without being a pure historical revival, Source Serif takes cues from the Fournier model and reworks it for a modern age.

In 2008, his graduation project led to the creation of the experimental type foundry Kiosk Fonts. An internship at FontShop International brought Frank to the Robothon 2009 conference in The Hague, which was a turning point for his career. He had the chance to spend the best year of his life studying at KABK The Hague, and graduated with a Master of Design in Type and Media in 2010.
