Not every font branding problem can be solved with an off-the-shelf solution. For those situations, Monotype Imaging is proud to offer the world’s largest, most experienced font development team that can work with you to develop custom or bespoke fonts for your product.
What are custom fonts or bespoke fonts?
Custom fonts are existing fonts that are modified to meet a customer’s requirements. Bespoke fonts, on the other hand, are completely new fonts designed for a particular use.
The Art of Type
The art of type is centered in our type design resources. We combine excellence in typeface design and in-depth technical know-how to solve typographic branding problems. We’re a team of professionals dedicated to fonts, type design and providing an unrivalled selection of custom and bespoke font services.
The Technology of Type
The type experts at Monotype Imaging have an extensive knowledge of font formats, languages and scripts, platforms and environments. We’ve got years of experience solving complex font problems ranging from tuning fonts for on-screen display to adding a wide range of non-Latin scripts for Unicode support. Our team helped create the original Macintosh and Windows TrueType fonts that revolutionized on-screen viewing on desktop computers. We've developed fonts that are used in millions of mobile phones, PDAs and printers.
Font software can be very complicated. Our goal is to help our customers identify their requirements without burdening them will all the nuances and minutia of detail or terminology that can seem overwhelming. Just because we love tweaking ink traps, sharpening stems or talking among ourselves in TLA’s (Three Letter Acronyms) doesn’t mean you need to learn a new language. Our customers love our ability to make complicated things simple.
