Our Partner Monotype.

Monotype is a type and technology company offering a vast library of over 150,000 fonts and the expertise to build impactful brands across all media. With a rich legacy including famed typefaces like Helvetica, Futura, and Times New Roman, Monotype makes fonts accessible for creative professionals to discover and provide suitable licenses for their use in all media. They work with global brands and individual creatives, providing solutions that simplify the creation of beautiful brand experiences.

Monotype’s story is one of innovation, adaptation, and eventually, transformation. They began in the late 1800s with a revolutionary machine for setting type. Their hot metal typesetter cast individual letters, making corrections much easier than other methods. They also played a key role in designing many popular fonts we still use today, like Times New Roman and Gill Sans. Today, Monotype is a digital typography company, and their journey reflects a constant push for innovation. From their meticulous attention to detail to their willingness to explore “out-of-the-box” ideas, they’ve established a unique brand identity. They license fonts to global brands, and individual creatives and design custom fonts as well. Time has been on Monotype’s side. Their long history, stretching back to the days of hot metal and reaching the cutting edge of Variable fonts, has given them a wealth of knowledge and experience in typeface design. This blend of tradition and innovation continues to position them as a leader in this type of industry. Imagine a world where finding the perfect font is effortless. Monotype makes that world a reality. Their in-house Studio designs custom typefaces for brands and offers a vast library of fonts for everyone, including popular designs like Helvetica Now and Futura Now. But Monotype goes beyond its own creations. Through partnerships with thousands of other foundries and type designers, they provide a one-stop shop for creative professionals. Through acquisitions, they’ve become a major player in the font industry. Some of the notable fonts that have come through these acquisitions include Berthold Type, Fontworks, Colophon, Sharp Type, DSType, and Kastelov. Monotype also offers exclusive access to their Studio, a team of expert designers and engineers who can help tackle any design challenge. So whether you need a custom typeface, access to a specific font, or expert guidance, Monotype provides a comprehensive solution for all your font needs. This truly embodies their principle of empowering creative minds to build and express authentic brands through design, technology, and expertise.
