FontFont Type Department

FontFont Type Department

FontFont represents some of the most talented and interesting type designers in the world. Behind every FontFont and type designer is a small group of secretly working technicians, designers, and typographic experts, the Type Department.

Combining design with the technical, the team—consisting of Andreas Frohloff, Inka Strotmann, Christoph Koeberlin, and Jens Kutílek—work to craft and develop outstanding typeface ideas into high quality fonts. They work directly and openly with each and every FontFont designer, providing aesthetic feedback and technical support with the aim to get the best out of every design. These unsung heroes work passionately and effortlessly for each and every FontFont but also, of course, for the love of type.
