  • Thick Block Revival
    Bringing an old typeface back to life for The Brooklyn Sandwich Society
  • The "@" symbol wasn't around when Thick Block was born so many years ago. The revival features an unorthodox, but fitting interpretation. The Brooklyn Sandwich Society welcomed the oddity with open arms.
  • Early sketches of the new "@" symbol show one variation that did not make the cut.
