Long time associates Michael Cina and Matthew Desmond have quietly launched their new effort, a self-described “micro foundry with a macro view.” Their recent soft-launch features Ramsey, a retail display sans, as well as the fascinating work for Disney and Nike.

Type aficionados will remember Cina and Desmond’s work with Joe Kral and the mighty Test Pilot Collective, in itself an inspiring visit given the archive of first pages still extant there.
