About Us

NaN is an exploratory and service-driven type design practice balancing weirdness and wisdom. Together with our wonderful rag-tag team of collaborators, clients and crew, we explore the relationship type has with code and technology – delivering projects with purpose. You can expect to find us at the intersection of serious and slap-happy.
