Dirty Bandits is a small, Brooklyn-based design firm specializing in typography, lettering and illustration run by Annica Lydenberg. Work done by Dirty Bandits is fueled by Annica’s deep appreciation for type, her interest in story telling and dedication to brands and individuals working for social good.

In 2011 she decided to pursue typography further and was part of the inaugural graduating class from Type @ Cooper, a one year program in typeface design at Cooper Union in New York. Having had enough of the computer, from Brooklyn Annica went to San Francisco to begin to learn sign painting at New Bohemia Signs.

Her artwork is inspired by traditional show card writing, 90s hip hop and her love of puns. She works with computer, painting, chalk, screen printing, and pen and ink, pulling stylistic influence from an ever growing photographic library of found type and vintage and contemporary signage.
