Dunwich Type Founders was founded by James Puckett who studied graphic design at the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, DC. He developed a love of typography at the Corcoran and wrote a thesis about the development of versatile typefaces as branding devices. James’ thesis was accompanied by James’ second type design project. After graduating with honors James decided to pursue type design full-time. In 2009 he started Dunwich Type Founders in New York City.
In addition to his type design James teaches typography and graphic design at Fordham University and the City College of New York. He also writes reviews of books about graphic design and design history.
