Graphic Designers

Originally conceived in 2001 as an avant-garde anti-design movement, Nolen Strals and Bruce Willen incorporated Post Typography in 2007 as a full time design studio specializing in graphic design, conceptual typography, and custom lettering/illustration with additional forays into art, apparel, music, curatorial work, design theory, and vandalism. Based in Baltimore, their work has received numerous fancy design awards and has been featured in such books as Graphic Design: The New Basics, Area 2, Contemporary Graphic Design, as well as Pyramyd Editions’ new monograph of the studio's work. Post Typography have appeared in multiple design and art exhibitions, and their posters are collected by high school punk rockers and prominent designers (whom they consider equally important). Strals and Willen teach design and typography at MICA, and have lectured at the Cooper Union, MCAD, and Harvard University. The studio recently wrote and designed Lettering & Type, published by Princeton Architectural Press in 2009.
