Since 1990, London-based Barnbrook Design has been producing innovative work that combines a mixture of typographic structure, politics and irony. The studio, which chooses to remain small, and works on projects without worrying about “bringing in the money,” has created such fonts as Mason and Exocet for Emigre, plus others released through Barnbrook’s own font foundry, Virus.
Barnbrook has collaborated with contemporary artists, including the much-acclaimed Damien Hirst on the monograph I want to spend the rest of my life everywhere with everyone, one to one always, forever now. Currently the studio is preoccupied with work that questions the critical role of graphic design in society, including work with Adbusters and specially commissioned pieces of graphic authorship.
