Originally conceived and founded in 2001 as an avant garde anti-design movement by Nolen Strals and Bruce Willen, Post Typography specializes in graphic design, conceptual typography, and custom lettering/illustration with additional forays into art, apparel, music, curatorial work, design theory, and vandalism. Their work has received numerous fancy design awards and has been featured in such publications as Ellen Lupton's Thinking With Type and D.I.Y.: Design It Yourself, The Art of Modern Rock, Metropolis magazine, Taschen's Contemporary Graphic Design, and Phaidon's Area 2. Post Typography have appeared in numerous design and art exhibitions, and their posters are collected by high school punk rockers and prominent designers (whom they consider equally important). Strals and Willen currently teach classes in design and typography at the Maryland Institute College of Art, and have lectured at the Cooper Union, Minneapolis College of Art & Design, and Harvard University among others.
