Based in the trendy district of Kreuzberg in Berlin, Germany, FontFont was established in 1990 when FontShop founder Erik Spiekermann and fellow type designer Neville Brody wanted to build a foundry where type was made for designers, by designers; a place where type designers were given a fair and friendly offer and where true type magic was made. “From the very beginning,” representatives of the foundry say, “we wanted to bend the rules and test typographic boundaries, to build a library with a collection like no other; a range of typefaces that had different styles, different purposes, that was contemporary, experimental, unorthodox, and radical.”
