Font stories.

Introducing Amariya.

Created with screen reading in mind, Amariya’s sculpted, understated elegance is specifically designed for long-form copy in Arabic, Urdu or Persian. Its open shapes and streamlined forms are tailored not just to the digital world, but the flow and rhythm required by someone immersing themselves in words.

Neue Kabel: reshaping a lost classic.

Neue Kabel brings back the liveliness of the original’s strikingly quirky characters, while adding in the long-lost italics and missing glyphs needed for it to address a wide range of editorial and branding purposes.

The story of PMN Caecilia Sans.

The making of the serif typeface PMN Caecilia from first sketches to usable fonts took more than seven years. Designed by Peter Matthias Noordzij, it is the child of a time when font technology changed rapidly, not knowing which development the next day would bring. Eventually it was released in 1991 and quickly turned into a quiet tip for designers; not overused, and yet selected for prominent applications. Today, more than 25 years later, Noordzij adds a sans serif companion to his first type family and equips it for today’s needs.

Introducing Neue Frutiger World.

More than 150 languages and scripts are supported in this global super family, which uses the warmth and clarity of the original Frutiger design to help brands communicate around the world with consistency.

Meet Neue Plak.

German designer Paul Renner is best known for his Futura design, but Plak, his ‘other’ typeface, is long overdue a rediscovery. Monotype designers Linda Hintz and Toshi Omagari have restored this under-appreciated design, creating a versatile set of 60 weights that draw on the forms of the original wood type.

SST: a font for everywhere.

The SST font tackles a central challenge of branding – universality. The SST superfamily supports more than 90 languages including Japanese, Thai and Arabic.

Meet Madera.

Embrace Ambiguity.
