About the company
Established in 1986 in Tel Aviv, Israel, Masterfont is the region’s leading font supplier — with Hebrew, Arabic and Latin all available. The company can proudly claim to have revived a market in diverse, high quality Hebrew fonts.
Ms. Piki Rosenberg manages the marketing, while Mr. Zvika Rosenberg directs font design. Masterfont employs a team of type designers, technical support providers, and administrative personnel. Skilled designers — Zvi Narkiss, Yaakov Agam, Asher Oron, Pini Hemo, Asher Gat, Yigal Feurstein, Ada Yardeni, and many others and Masterfont’s own Zvika Rosenberg — have helped to build today’s library of almost one thousand styles (2,500 fonts), which at a stroke gives designers similar typographic freedom that they are used to in work in Latin languages such as English. So far, more than fifty type designers decided to release their fonts through Masterfont. The fonts that make up Masterfont’s library are chosen carefully in order to service a wide spectrum of users, from publishers and daily newspapers to graphic designers and business users. The basic package of fonts that Masterfont offers is chosen by Apple Computer of Israel and is included in every laser printer sold in Israel.
The combination of high quality fonts and innovative graphic design provides the perfect solution for any requirements of the company’s obligation to its clients. Masterfont continues to develop fonts and new typographical solutions in order to satisfy the varied needs in the industrial and design fields. Masterfont also encourages typographical designers to join the company in its extended marketing efforts.
