Emigre is a digital type foundry and publisher of the design journal Emigre magazine. Based in Northern California, Emigre was there, in the eye of the storm, when the Macintosh computer was first introduced in 1984. As part of a small group of believers, Emigre used the restrictions of low resolution output to create inventive new typeface designs and layouts. This earned them recognition early on as innovators in the field of graphic design.
As the Macintosh grew up, so did Emigre. Its library now houses over 300 modern typeface designs from designers around the world. And Emigre magazine, while a prime showcase for the use of Emigre fonts, has developed into a journal exploring graphic design in the widest sense of the term. Emigre was founded by Zuzana Licko and Rudy VanderLans.
