Joe VanDerBos

Joe VanDerBos has worked as an illustrator and graphic designer for 15 years in Austin, Chicago, San Francisco and the Midwest. He holds a BFA in Graphic Design from Western Michigan University. His business provides illustration, custom typography and logo development to a broad cross section of clients.

With the past slipping away so quickly, timelessness is a virtue Joe holds highest as a type designer. He says: "By making faces today that look like something from yesterday, I feel I'm making something that will outlast trends. I try to imagine what Retrofit would have looked like in a newspaper ad from 1953. That’s my inspiration. Create faces that will intrigue a reader 50 years from now."
