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.
