About Brian Willson

Brian WillsonBrian Willson grew up in Austin, Texas, in the 1950s and ’60s. He bounced around the Austin music scene a while before snagging a Radio/TV/Film degree from The University of Texas in 1979. The next year he became a father and promptly high-tailed it with his little family to coastal Maine, where he worked as a broadcast and print journalist for many years.

Willson founded 3IP in 1989 to self-publish a book of pretentious nature essays. Soon after, he found himself tinkering with type design, and 3IP has since become known for its library of authentic-looking handwriting fonts—many of them modeled after historical penmanship—and antique text replications.

In the summer of 2019, Willson moved with Captain Jack, his Australian Cattle Dog mix, to Salt Lake City, where, in his free time, he enjoys birding, hiking, and nature photography. For the past few years, he’s been fiddling around with fiction.

RANDOM SIGHTING:
Houston Pen

KIND WORDS:

“The Lamar Pen font is divine. We are using it on a novel set in the eighteenth century, and the author is ecstatic.”
—J.H., London, England

“Keep up the fonts! They are some of the best I have seen in 10-plus years of design.”
—M.O., Little Rock AR

“The fonts you offer are quite unique and beautifully done.... Your site and ecommerce process was also a pleasure to view and to use.”
—R.M., Newbury NH

“I've never seen anyone digitize old quill-pen handwriting [like Schooner Script], warts and all. You've done a fine job.”
—R.W., Costa Mesa CA

“[American Scribe] may be the greatest font ever! Everyone on the planet should have it!”
—M.P., Boulder CO

“There's a fair number of what I call 'scrawl' faces out there. [Treefrog] is one of the very few I really like.”
—P.M., Palatine IL

“You have maintained a level of quality in the design of your various fonts that rivals the best foundries.”
—G.V., Salem OR
