Back in 1990, Erik Spiekermann and Neville Brody decided to build a foundry where type was made for "designers by designers", a library where type designers were given a fair and friendly offer and where type magic could happen. From the very beginning, FontFont bent the rules and crossed typographic boundaries. Within several years FontFont and its Typeboard built a successful library for all purposes, that was contemporary, experimental, unorthodox, and radical.Twenty-five years later FontFont is now one of the leading font foundries with the largest library of original, contemporary typefaces. The library is home to over 2500 FontFonts including favorites such as FF Meta, FF DIN, FF Scala, FF Dax, and FF Kievit and newbies like, FF Chartwell, FF Tundra, FF Ernestine, and FF Tisa.At the heart of what FontFont do 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 the 196 weight superfamily FF Good in 2014, FontFont place creativity at the forefront and produces the highest quality typefaces that are technically robust and that continually innovate.

"This foundry started in 2020 by Ferry Ardana Putra, in East Java, Indonesia. He was an English Teacher, but during this year He was started as a Font maker. It was still early for him and he tried his best. Back in the 2016, he was selling vector design for his client (you can check his work at Instagram @ardana619). On that year, he took design service for making vector face. Sadly, in his country designing was kind of hit or miss, some people were not paying for his service. Moreover, some people - especially close friends - asked him to make a design for free. On 2017, he was doing research at his university which took too much time and the design service he provided could not be continued. After graduated, he started teaching English at Junior high school level. Unfortunately, the earning he got was pretty bad, so during this coronavirus pandemic, he decided to quit and started designing again. He focused on making typeface design. Typeface designing was pretty hard for him. It took at least three months to learn and finally he published his first font at 23rd September. His store got approved at fontbunddles.net and also his third font – Killer Queen got sales at 24th September. That was one of happiest moments he ever got. Because of that, he decided to focus more on typeface designing and make great typeface again and again."

Hello my name is Alessandro and my foundry is called FontAle. I know you might think 
something like "Sure, it is "Font + Ale", so trivial, so dull...Well, not quite.Maybe it does not sound original, but it is all about origins: in old Italian "Fontale" means origin, fountain, source.That is exactly what we would like to do with our foundry: being the origin of a new type of font to help dyslexics with their reading.Let me tell you the story behind this wish. It's a short one, I promise!One day, when I was walking with my daughter Greta, I stopped in front of the windowshop of a bookshop, that caught my attention, but Greta was pretty irritated, as always when it comes to books: she is dyslexic. All things written are basically a nightmare for her!So one thing came to my mind: if the great Louis Braille, with visual impairment, invented an instrument that allowed blind people to read, write and play,there had to be a tool that made it easier for dyslexics to do the same things. So, I proposed to Greta to create together a font to help her and other 
dyslexics. We worked on it, becoming a bit of graphic designers, inventors and guinea pigs at the same time.We brought some initial changes to the mirror letters "pq bd", based on some examples already available on the market, that improved reading times, strenghtening our willing to go ahead. That's how "GretaDS" is born, a completely new font, from the "handwritten" family, which marks a difference on the mirror letters, making them easily recognizable, as well as the lowercase couple rn (RN) which can be confused with the letter "m", not to mention the capital "I" (vowel i) indistinguishable from the lowercase "l" (L).Our foundry wants to be, as mentioned in the beginning, the origin, the little source of a river. We hope, that other graphic designers will follow its flow, modify and improve the path, and make the most of its energy, to offer dyslexics a tool that make reading as easy as drinking a glass of water.This is our Foundry and our dream, Fontale, "the origin".


The origins of Fontar is a graphic design research study that was a part of my PhD candidature at the Luleå University of Technology, Sweden. As a method to externalise graphic design knowledge, I documented my process during my work on a new typeface, from first sketches to the finished fonts. The result was the Tacit typeface, a sans serif typeface in two weights, Regular and Medium. Tacit is a clean and legible font, even at smaller sizes, suitable for both shorter and longer texts.

Born and raised in the Seulimum area, I¿¿™ve always had a passion for art and design. Starting my career as a traditional oil painter, I quickly realized that the digital world was the way of the future. I dropped everything and focused entirely on graphic design and I design fonts under the foundry name of Fontcastle. 




Along the road I¿¿™ve worked both as an in-house designer for large corporations, at an agency and as a freelancer. The agency environment taught me to juggle multiple clients and to work fast and efficiently. Working in-house, I learned to follow brand guidelines and to be creative, while still maintaining consistency. Lastly, freelancing has strengthened my communication skills with clients and developed my independent problem solving abilities. My combined learnings from these three worlds has given me the experience and confidence to work with amazing clients from around the globe. Now my focus is on building happy and healthy long-term partnerships with clients by providing unique insights and quality design.




When I¿¿™m not designing, you¿¿™ll find me up coffee shop at the Aceh cottage or relaxing in the park with my family. If you¿¿™re interested in working together or just want to say hi, I¿¿™d love to hear from you.
