Your Favourite Digital Foundries?
0

¶ Find the ritual question concerning the foundries that you admire and purchase from.

Back in the 1990's, the first foundry that I was hooked on was
House Industries.
I discovered it by reading a newspaper in which I noticed <em>House Gothic</em>.

Let's hear from you…

I don’t licence fonts any more, but I used to.
I was impressed with FontFont back in the day (c.1990), in particular the classic vibe of their black + PMS 115 direct mail flyers and brochures.
So, no surprise that they published my first digital type design, in 1994.

I can't think of another foundry as culturally significant as Monokrom.

to Nick: why did you stop?
to Hrant: could you explain more why Monokrom is culturally significant.
thanks!

They make highly usable fonts that bravely introduce new –or rare– ideas. Virtually all foundries are highly formulaic.

licensing your fonts?

I meant license from others, as in the OP’s “…purchase [licences] from…”, not licence to.

So I have changed from licensing fonts from others, which I did in the early days of digital, when I was working as an art director and graphic designer, to licensing fonts to others, since I have been publishing fonts full time.
