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 on Michael Gericke’s team at Pentagram. Previously, I have worked for Artisan Council, The Jewish Museum, 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 squished typefaces.

BASTARD TYPEFACE


A display typeface lovingly named Bastard after its Gothic inspiration, as well as its additions of the “new”—pixels. The 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.
