Founded by Joshua Darden, we publish work that we want to experience in the hands of others and to use ourselves. Darden Studio membership signifies an affinity for the brand started by Joshua Darden and continued by Joyce Ketterer (most members have multiple projects in multiple places but regard the studio as a kind of second home.).
We pursue typography that is the result of earnest inquiry, suited to contemporary technical and design expectations, and rooted in the values and practices of five centuries of typefounding. Good typography withstands the whims of fashion. It is aware of its time and place but functioning far into the future. To begin a conversation, please get in touch with us and tell us what you’d like your type to say about you.
