About the Artist:
Dan rides the blue wind high and free. He's a designer, illustrator, teacher and typographer. He resides just outside Philadelphia with his stylish wife and daughters. Dan also enjoys gray hooded sweat shirts, long walks with a beer, and early Star Wars trivia. One of his latest contributions to the Lost Type Co-Op includes Lehigh, a typeface that marries the charm of antique slab serifs with the functionality you'd expect from a contemporary typeface.
Amongst other familiar typefaces, Dan is also the creator of Dude. A reverse contrast cowboy font inspired by the whiskey drinking, train hopping, fist fighting, hard loving, prison breaking, men and women of country music.
His style fuses equal parts hand and computer with a few minor league printing techniques peppered in for good measure. Dan likes his design like he likes his music; wearing it’s imperfections like a badge of honor.
Additionaly, he's a basement shuffle board champion.
Bring a friend and we hope to see you there!
