FONT DEVELOPMENT


WE’VE WORKED WITH HUNDREDS OF CLIENTS — FORTUNE 500 COMPANIES, DESIGN FIRMS & FOUNDRIES — ON EVERY ASPECT OF FONT DEVELOPMENT. AND WE’D LOVE TO WORK WITH YOU! HERE’S WHAT WE SPECIALIZE IN…

LANGUAGE SUPPORT

We have extensive experience building fonts with support for Extended Latin and Cyrillic, Polytonic Greek, Hebrew and more. Need a script we can’t handle in house? We can connect you to the best possible expert.

FONT VALIDATION

It only takes one small internal glitch for a font to falter. We can quickly diagnose and correct problems using our proprietary FontProbe system. You’ll receive a perfect font backed by our Quality Guarantee.

WEBFONTS

A top-notch webfont is more than just a desktop font run through a converter. We give special consideration to the design, encoding and hinting of webfonts to make sure they’re truly optimized and web-ready.

OPENTYPE FEATURE CODING

Anything from simple contextual substitutions to complex ligature chains and on-the-fly randomization. We can handle advanced OpenType coding while ensuring maximum application support for every feature.

LOGO FONTS

Let us place your your logo, icons, signature — or any other artwork you use frequently — into font form. The result will be smooth and scalable artwork that’s just a key click away from your work documents.

HANDWRITING FONTS

Take your handwriting to the next level! Unlike a cheap, automated solution, we’ll refine and enhance your letterforms, and get them to typeset smoothly. We’ll even include variant letters for extra authenticity.

DESIGN & DRAFTING

Send us your analog artwork or rough vectors, whether rough or near final, and we’ll create point-perfect vector files that are ready for action. We can also micro-tune your wordmarks, icons and spot illustrations.

LETTERFIT

What happens between letters is as important as the letterforms themselves. We use time-tested methods, proprietary tools and our keen compositional eye to produce fonts that typeset seamlessly and, if we may say so, beautifully.

WEIGHT DEVELOPMENT

We combine the best digital tools with an artisanal approach when building new weights. The final fonts, whether ultra lights or ultra blacks, are extra strong thanks to the optical nuance and polish we bring to them.

STYLE DEVELOPMENT

Whether you need true-drawn italics, inlines, condensed or extended variants, smallcaps… zebra striped letters, or any other styles for your projects, we’ll make sure you receive the very best variant fonts.

HINTING

The most esoteric aspect of font creation, and a must for any text or regularized font that’s intended for serious, commercial use. We can custom hint PostScript and TrueType fonts for balanced, well-aligned final results.

FONT MASTERING

Every development phase mentioned here converges during the mastering process. We know exactly what setup will yield the best results for a particular font, based on anticipated use and other technical factors.
