National Park Typeface
Working with Rocky Mountain Park rangers, my students, and colleague Andrea Herstowski we created a new typeface designed to mimic the National Park Service signs that are carved using a router bit. Using rubbings from park signage and data from the RMNP’s sign shop we brought this iconic type into the digital realm in the form of an open source shareable (for the first time) computer typeface.

A complete family with four weights (thin, regular, bold and outline) the typeface has been getting some intial press and has been downloaded from all over the world and in every state in the US.
