ABOUT







Undercase Type [Phaedra Charles]

Undercase Type is based in Brooklyn, NY. It is the independent type foundry of Phaedra Charles and Flavia Zimbardi, who met while attending the Type@Cooper Extended Program at the Cooper Union. Phaedra Charles is a Brooklyn-based typeface designer and lettering artist. From 2011-2014, she was Senior Designer at Louise Fili Ltd, and was a partner at Charles&Thorn, a boutique typographic and illustration studio. Flavia Zimbardi is a typeface designer and visual artist. Native from Rio de Janeiro, she is currently based in New York and has collaborated with foundries such as Frere-Jones, Commercial Type, and Adobe Fonts. Flavia was the first Brazilian woman to have a typeface awarded by the Type Directors Club in 2018.

In 2020, Phaedra Charles and Flavia Zimbardi co-designed the free decorative text typeface Fraunces at Undercase Type. Commissioned by Google Fonts, Fraunces is huge--it has over one hundred styles and covers four design axes: optical size (9pt to 144pt), weight, softness, and wonk. Fraunces is a display "Old Style" soft-serif typeface inspired by the mannerisms of early 20th century typefaces such as Windsor, Souvenir, and the Cooper Series.

At Lost Type and Undercase Type, Phaedra Charles, Kelly Thorn, and Flavia Zimbardi published the chunky art nouveau typeface Regina Black (2020).

In 2018, Charles&Thorn published Phaedra Charles's back-slanted Mollydooker at Future Fonts. It was republished in 2020 at Undercase.
