Who’s behind Society of Fonts?

Society of Fonts is me, Brandon Buerkle.

I’ve always identified as an artist and loved words. As a kid I drew constantly and even played with letter-shaped toys. When I realized later in life that illustrating letters is a viable profession, that sealed the deal for me.

I work through the lens of my Quaker values, and strive to use lettering as social entrepreneurship. Incorporating my years of experience in print production, print design, and fine art, I focus on creating letterforms to promote peace, equality, and social & environmental justice.
