Speaker Series: Type Talk with Lost Type Co-op

Type Talk

Join Lost Type Co-op’s co-founder, Riley Cran, and designer, Dan “Grayhood” Gneiding, for a lecture of a typographic nature! Riley and Dan will share stories of their paths from graphic design to type design, show some recent work and reveal some best practices they have learned along the way. In addition, there will also be stories about Batman, cupcakes, world travel, roller coasters, SkyMall, and poop. 

Riley Cran

His work has been recognized by Communication Arts, HOW magazine, LogoLounge, Gestalten Publishing and the American Institute of Graphic Arts. He is also the manager of Lost Type Co-Op, a collaborative Digital Type Foundry which he co-founded in 2011.

Aspiring to create characterful and functional work, Riley merges historical influences with fresh, contemporary solutions for clients such as Dropbox, Yale University, Sonic Drive-In (via SHS), Amazon, Condé Nast, Red Bubble, Notre Dame, Deutsche Telekom, CBC, Bonnier, Herb Lester Associates, and others.

Dan Gneiding

Dan rides the blue wind high and free as a designer, illustrator, teacher and typographer. He resides just outside Philadelphia with his stylish wife and daughters and enjoys gray hooded sweatshirts, long walks with a beer, and early Star Wars trivia.

Dan’s style fuses equal parts hand and computer with a few minor league printing techniques peppered in for good measure. Dan likes his design like he likes his music; wearing its imperfections like a badge of honor.
