MCBEAN SANS REGULAR 

The McBean family is the result of a 2013 commission from California Institute of the Arts to create a multi-style typeface as an extension to the school’s branding. Initially only three styles, McBean was expanded to sixteen styles in 2017 for general release.

MCBEAN SLAB REGULAR 

CalArts is a community formed in the Disney imagination that has become an incubator for conceptual makers — the Burtonesque freaks on the hill of the Santa Clarita Valley. The design program has a rich history of type design, ranging from the quirky to the bizarre, which inspired the development of an eclectic voice in line with the school’s identity.

MCBEAN SANS REGULAR 

McBean’s mannered approaches — insistent geometry, cheeky ornamentality, and mumpsimust logic — are gratefully inspired by the work of CalArtian designers, in particular Andrea Tinnes, Ian Lynam, Sibylle Hagmann, Barry Deck, Micah Hahn, Jens Gehlhaar, Mr. Keedy and Ed Fella.

McBean is derived from a logo drawn by Scott Taylor for the CalArts. Many thanks to Scott and to Joe Prichard, who’s initiative and creative direction were instrumental to the project; thanks as well to Cassandra Chae, Stuart Smith and the CalArts Office of Public Affairs for helping shape McBean along the way.
