/ Thinstroke


After independently illustrious careers, Tony Di Spigna and Bill Hilson founded Thinstroke in 2009. Tony was a partner in the legendary studio Lubalin Associates, where he worked on all aspects of visual communication and graphic design. Bill, former creative director for the HiFi Color Project–one of the first to print with stochastic screening and extra-trinary printing techniques, has spent most of his career exposing the creativity within technological innovation. Thinstroke publishes Di Spigna’s typefaces, each of which is hand-drawn with ink and white-paint before being meticulously digitized.
