Brian Warren

Web Type West

Brian is a designer with over 15 years of experience designing, building, and writing for the web. For several years, he ran his own design shop in Colorado, and in 2009 joined up with Happy Cog in Philadelphia. These days you can find Brian in sunny Seattle, as Creative Director at Tagboard. Brian has worked with clients big and small including, Nike, They Might Be Giants, and Nintendo. When he’s not geeking out about typography, Brian often is finding something analog to be excited about. This usually involves brewing beer, doing crossfit, and best of all, hanging out with his family. He still writes, albeit occasionally, on his blog, Be Good Not Bad.
