Since the publication of his Sharp Sans No.1 type family through the Village Incubator, designer Lucas Sharp has gone from strength to strength, releasing 3 more families through the Incubator and taking on some significant custom type projects. Sharp Sans has been wonderfully embraced by designers around the world, including Michael Bierut at Pentagram, who used the typeface in his identity for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Presidential campaign. (See more about that project here.)

We are proud to announce that Lucas’s new company with his partner, Chantra Malee, Sharp Type Co. is moving into its own slot at Village. We look forward to bringing you more — a LOT more — type from Lucas in the coming months and years.
