Shopgirl

I thought I read in a review of the new Steve Martin fiilm (and book) Shopgirl that one of the main characters was a font designer. I googled and found out it was not a typo.

Wondering if there are any other movie characters who are font designers? Once in a while you catch someone who is a graphic designer or illustrator But even that is pretty rare.

Anyone care to share their cinematic knowledge or is this the only example?

I seem to recall that the character Noel (Scott Foley) in the tv show "Felicity" designed a font at one point. He was also designing web pages, Flash animations, etc. I think it was a "grunge" font.
