Font Bureau

Font Bureau was founded in 1989 by type designer David Berlow and media strategist Roger Black. Headquartered in Boston, MA, the small foundry employs a staff of full-time designers and its library has been contributed to by the likes of Tobias Frere-Jones, Matthew Carter, Jim Parkinson, John Downer, Leslie Cabarga, Cyrus Highsmith, Berlow himself, and others. “In a big way, all the designers whose work is published through Font Bureau are my latest teachers,” Berlow, a recipient of the SoTA Award, says in his Creative Characters interview. “From them I learn how to look at things related to type today from a variety of stylistic and entrepreneurial perspectives.”

Classical capitals are accompanied by Lipton’s own calligraphic lowercase, small caps, and swashes.
