With 20,000+ typefaces in our locker, dating back over more than a century, we’re the guardians of designs that shaped modern typography. Many of the most important libraries of the past are in our care, including Linotype, ITC, Haas, and Stempel. That legacy is in the safest hands. Senior Monotype designers, highly respected in the typographic community, reimagine selected historic fonts to produce contemporary, emotionally resonant renderings.
Since our earliest days, we’ve worked with the very best type designers around, to draw in new influences and make sure we’re offering real diversity to customers. The tradition goes back to our collaborations with some of the giants of type design, including Frederic Goudy, Eric Gill and Berthold Wolpe, and it continues with exclusive releases and commissioned fonts from the best independent designers, as well as collaborations between them and our own studio.
