Typeface Design

GORDO (1).png

With guidance from Tal Leming, I designed my first typeface this fall. I called it Gordo, after the town in Alabama where I really learned how to letterpress print back in 2009, '10, and '11 (thank you Jessica Peterson & Amos Kennedy for the lessons and inspiration). Gordo as a name also feels bold and slab-y!
