Fontal Story      

In late 2016, creative director Thom BaginskiThom Baginski had brain surgery. He lost a tumor in his cerebellum, but gained a unique style of handwriting. Working with Kyle LynahKyle Lynah, a writing sample from Thom was transformed into the typeface that has come to be called Fontal Lobe.

OpenType features were added to give a more handmade touch to the font. The lightweight version was created to intentionally look & feel more like a pencil while the bold weight took on a round marker influence.
