ABOUT







Harold Brodersen

Designer (b. 1913) at American Typefounders of the informal brush script font Brody (1953), a mediocre fifties typeface later released as BrodyEF at Elsner&Flake. Corel imitated this in Briquet, ClickArt Fonts in Brisk, Softmaker in Bryce, and Agfa / Compugraphic / Monotype in Brophy Script (by Carolyn Gibbs). MyFonts spells his name Broderson, as does Linotype.

Mac McGrew: Brody was designed by Harold Broderson for ATF about 1953, as part of that company's effort to replace its delicate old connecting scripts with contemporary lettering styles. This rather heavy, vertical design has the appearance of being rapidly lettered with a brush. It is the most informal of several typefaces produced in that program, but makes a very attractive appearance where informality is desired. Compare Kaufmann, Brush, and Repro Script.
