English stonecutter, who learned his craft as apprentice to Eric Gill from 1933. In 1939 he set up his own workshop in Cambridge. Kindersley invented a system for the accurate spacing of letters. In 1952 he submitted a design, MoT Serif, to the British Ministry of Transport, who required new lettering to use on UK road signs. This all-caps design was passed over in favour of that of Jock Kinneir and Margaret Calvert. It is often praised, but has not seen wide adoption. He married Lida Lopes Cardozo, also a stonecutter.

When David Kindersley launched on his self-employed career as a letter-cutter and alphabet designer in the 1930s he was determined to make things that people actually needed - be it memorials, typefaces, tombstones, or inscriptions to decorate the home. He pursued this aim with charm and single-minded vigour for 60 years. He tackled bookplates, book jackets, paper-weights and film titles; he worked as adviser to the Shell Film Unit from 1949 to 1958 and was a consultant to Letraset International from 1964 until 1988.
