LAUREN FRANK


Hi, I’m a Graphic Designer based in New York City. I graduated from University of California, Los Angeles in 2020, where I studied Art and Art History and I am now working as a Designer for Artisan Council, while also doing freelance work for design studios and non profits. Previously, I’ve worked at The Jewish Museum in New York, VICE Media, and Bravo within NBCUniversal.

My main interests within design include typography, archives, branding, and publication design, as well as the intersections between art and design.

Big fan of to-do lists, lists in general, Hieronymus Bosch, the relationship between witchcraft and feminism, weird art, and really chubby typefaces.

BASTARD TYPEFACE


A newfound fascination with type design and the history of design led me to begin the process of creating my own typeface, lovingly named Bastard. The basic forms of Bastard are derived from a French Gothic typeface, Batarde or Bastarda, a blackletter script. The pixelated appearance shows a melding of the deep history of type with contemporary, digitized design. This combination of the old with the new, as well as the name of the original blackletter script, inspired the name Bastard.
