Back in 1990, Erik Spiekermann and Neville Brody wanted to build a foundry where type was made for designers by designers, a place where type designers were given a fair and friendly offer and where type magic was made.
From the very beginning, FontFont wanted to bend the rules and test typographic boundaries, to build a library with a collection like no other; a range of typefaces that had different styles, different purposes, that was contemporary, experimental, unorthodox, and radical.
Fast-forward over twenty years later and FontFont is now one of the leading independent font foundries with the largest library of original, contemporary typefaces. The library is home to over 2500 designs including favorites such as FF DIN, FF Meta, FF Scala, FF Dax, and FF Kievit and newbies like, FF Chartwell, FF Mark, FF Ernestine, and FF Tisa.
At the heart of what FontFont does is a heady mix of intuition, passion, a sprinkling of serendipity, an eye for detail, and a dash of attitude. From the first ever random font FF Beowolf to the release of Web FontFonts in 2010, they place creativity at the forefront and pride themselves on producing the highest quality typefaces that are technically robust and that continually innovate.
