K-Type is a small, independent type foundry based in Manchester England, offering a unique range of high quality ‘free for personal use’ fonts, and pay fonts which are modestly and simply priced for designers, small businesses and large organizations.
K-Type is the foundry of designer and mail artist, Keith Bates. Many K-Type fonts show the influence of inspirational artists and designers, and are often imbued with a playful wit and the genuine affection of honorable homage. Other K-Type fonts explore the quirky eclecticism of the British typographical landscape and the considerable allure of American letterforms. The resulting faces are reliable and eminently usable. Most feature a good complement of accented characters, and increasingly offer a selection of weights and italics.
