WHO IS GOODTYPE?

In the Summer of 2012, Brooke Robinson quit her job as a graphic designer in Austin, TX and rode her bicycle down the West Coast from Canada to Mexico. This trip revived her love for the letter arts. The bike allowed her to more intimately connect with her environment on the road and in the cities. She discovered that the West Coast was a treasure trove of hand lettering with hand painted murals and hand lettered signs and logo badges everywhere. She soon began curating this love on Instagram, thus @Goodtype was born on July 24th, 2013. Goodtype has since grown to a community of over 1 million that share Brooke's love of lettering and type design. 

For the love of letters from A to Z, connecting all strokes with all folks—we are Strength in Letters.
