Background

Brownstone, the face born from these explorations, is an original 21st-century design, yet one subtly infused with historical and cultural references “ keen observers might spot influences from decorative typefaces of 19th-century foundries. And just as faces from that era were influenced by contemporary architecture, the frames included with Brownstone echo the ornate iron railings of Park Slope’s row houses.
