TYPOGRAPHY

Brendan created a series of typefaces inspired by the aesthetics of Poland, circa 1908 to 1939. His initial goal was highlight the style of the Młoda Polska movement, but later expanded the project to include Art Deco styles of the 20’s and 30’s. The project has featured in The Cosmopolitan Review. Here are the typefaces in their final form. All are available for purchase.
