Chank is proud to premiere the talent of intern Ben Sandstrom, who is finishing up his bachelor's degree from St. Cloud State University. With a double major in graphic design and painting, Ben is a perfect fit for The Chank Company.
Ben culled from his artistic education to create Newveau, his first font. "I sat down one day with my sketchbook and started drawing letters, and apparently I was in a nouveau mood that day," explains Ben. "Back in school I used to make hand-drawn posters for events, during the course of which I mastered the typography of Alphonse Mucha to the point of being able to do his alphabets by memory."
Ben's font is an original creation inspired by the letter designs of Mucha, the Czechoslovakian artist credited with pioneering the ornamental Art Nouveau movement through his designs for theater sets, play posters and champagne advertising.
