I love bicycles. I love everything about them from riding to wrenching. For the past 10 years or so, I’ve been an extremely avid cyclist. Road, Gravel, Mountain, I ride it all. This is why I’m super excited to show off the logo I designed for the newly released Berd Talon hubs. With all of the clients I’ve worked with, I have not had the chance to mix font work with a bicycle brand until now. If you are part of a bicycle brand or cause, hit me up. I would love to work with you.

The Penrose Triangle Book Cover
I had the opportunity to design a book cover typeface for my friend Kris Clewell’s latest work: The Penrose Triangle. We both agreed that inspiration from 1960’s and 70’s science fiction and western pulp novels would be a great fit. It turned out lovely combined with the foreboding mystery of the cover artwork. I’m looking forward to the next books in the series.

The title says it all. I’ve been at this for 20 years now. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of my clients from all over the globe for helping make MADType a successful business.
