We Are Autotype

We believe design should be beautiful, timeless, thoughtful, and inclusive. That’s why we created this community—a space for seasoned vets, newbies, fans, tastemakers, and mavericks alike—to celebrate design from all angles.

Spearheading Autotype’s mission is founder Derek Galkin alongside Creative Director Andrew Rosenthal. With Autotype, we invest in the future of design by creating an inclusive platform for designers to entertain the impossible, showcase their work, and find support from a community that values great design. We continue to challenge ourselves creatively, exploring unique artistic intersections and business ideas. Through Autotype and their many collaborations, Galkin and Rosenthal strive to push the design market to be more innovative, inclusive, and daring.

We dig deep into the stories and inspirations behind our favorite brands in the Autotype Design Club, spotlighting a different designer each month. In our marketplace, we curate everyday lifestyle products that fuse form and function—from the pencils we sketch with to the coffee table books in our living room and the chairs in our office. But the impact goes beyond the product. Each month we donate 5% of all sales to our featured designer’s alma mater, encouraging a new generation of creatives to push boundaries and think outside the box. It’s about amplifying art, sparking dialogue, and connecting as a community. Together, we celebrate design.
