A wide range of innovative tools and technologies that help users and OEMs bring type to life.
In the digital era, advanced tools are required to render, scale, optimize and display type on screen and in a wide range of products and devices. Without this technology, type is simply an artful collection of interesting shapes. With it, type becomes a powerful communication tool.
Monotype complements its extensive libraries of exceptional typefaces with more than two dozen innovative technologies that empower creative professionals to do their best work and enhance the value of our OEM customers’ products. We combine these tools with expert services leveraging our long-standing experience as leaders in type.
Fonts & Design Services
Type is the core of our business. The ultimate goal of all our products, services and solutions is to ensure that customers can use our type to the fullest, preserving its high quality and aesthetic value on screens, printers and the Web. Monotype offers an extensive selection of fonts, from classics to modern designs, for every purpose. We also create custom fonts and consult on typographic issues for an organization’s branding programs.
Screen images are created by pixels; the more pixels, the better the quality of the image. But even at higher resolutions, type at small sizes can be less than optimal quality. With so many screens and resolutions, type needs a helping hand – and that helping hand is Monotype. We offer a number of powerful technologies that can ensure that typefaces look their best at any size, any resolution, on any screen.
From the time of Gutenberg’s mechanical printing press to today, the advancements in printing technologies and printers themselves have left users with a host of printing languages, document formats, printer drivers and the unique characteristics and resolutions of various types of printers. Monotype supports them with tools and technologies that ensure both quality and compatibility, regardless of the device.
Typefaces are an investment and creative professionals and large enterprises can have a large number of fonts – from Monotype and other companies – on their servers. Managing this investment to ensure maximum productivity and efficiency is an important task – one that Monotype makes easier with a range of easy-to-use font management tools.
Designing typefaces is an art and type is an important tool for creating compelling art and design. Monotype’s fonts are of exceptional aesthetic quality; in addition to offering our type in the formats that creative professionals need, we also provide a number of technologies that enable users to explore their creativity and give free reign to their imaginations. Some of these tools enhance the typographic functionality of leading design applications.
