ABOUT







Roxaboxen [Graham Bradley]

A Lebanese American, Graham Bradley grew up in Pasadena, CA. He studied twentieth-century European history at the University of California, Berkeley, and graduated in 2009. He also graduated from the Type@Cooper program at The Cooper Union in New York. Graham designs printed materials, lettering, typefaces, and the occasional website. He is located in California. Before founding Roxaboxen, Graham was the first employee at Frere-Jones Type, where he worked with Tobias Frere-Jones on Mallory and Retina. He is an instructor at Type West at the Letterform Archive.

During his studies at Type@Cooper in 2012, he designed Anacapa, and writes: Anacapa is an attempt to subtly express, in type, the identity of my home state: the cool, gray calm of beach volleyball courts in the early morning, the dispersed energy of Los Angeles, the warmth of the sunlight on the rocky Central Coast... It is an imagined piece of California's vernacular, designed to be as flexible and complex as the emotional range it seeks to capture.

His typeface Madtown (2019, Future Fonts) is inspired by letters from the American West, in particular the styles that have a capital oh with wedge-shaped serifs. In 2019, he also released the arts and crafts-inspired Mara des Bois at Future Fonts.

Other typefaces by Graham include Ogilvy Serif (2021, with Jeremy Mickel), and Bacterium (2014, a molecular typeface done for Alexander Issey Inc; it has multiple versions for each glyph). Graham also helps with type design at MCKL Type, Jeremy Mickel's type foundry in Los Angeles.
