Type Brut is a display-type foundry that revives art-historical letterforms. It was founded in 2014 by Brian LaRossa after he curated an exhibition titled Undefined by Design which also explored the intersection of art and design. Some Type Brut display faces are reactions to early 20th century avant garde magazines, some are reactions to historically significant works of art. The alphabets have been extrapolated from a handful of letters—each display face is part revival, part invention. Type Brut embodies the belief that innovation is born from a well explored past. Look back, think forward.
