Font Bureau

Font Bureau was founded in 1989 by type designer David Berlow and media strategist Roger Black. Throughout the last quarter of a century, Font Bureau has designed custom typefaces for almost every major American publication and has built a retail library that houses some of the most popular fonts on the market such as bestsellers Interstate and Benton Sans.

 “The decisions about what designs to produce and how to craft them draw upon a base of typographic knowledge built firmly on hundreds of years of tradition. This remains the essence of what Font Bureau does.” Berlow’s illustrious career in type design was celebrated when he won the Type Directors Club medal in 2014. “Type designers who lived hundreds and occasionally thousands of years ago are still teaching me because type design is pretty much infinite,” he says, “and all it takes is a letter you’ve never seen before to incite learning, I think.”
