About Foundry Monoline Font Family
Foundry Monoline is an elegant, modern typeface family eminently suited for use in identity, editorial, and advertising use. The deceptively simple design, and clean, linear appearance has been created using strong structural elements. Each character has its own subtleties and variations, with the monoline appearance achieved through careful optical adjustment. Since its first release, the family has been extended from 7 to 12 fonts. It now includes a comprehensive choice of 6 weights with accompanying italics - from ultra-light beautiful at large sizes, to extra bold great for headlines. It is also available in OpenType Levels 1, 2 and 3 providing a wide range of language access.
About The Foundry
Started in 1989–90 by David Quay and Freda Sack, with just two typefaces Foundry Sans and Foundry Old Style, The Foundry typeface library has grown into a unique range of font styles, covering a range of languages and formats. The partners continue to develop new typeface designs to expand The Foundry font collection.
David and Freda bring a unique combination of traditional and modern approaches to font design and implementation, having worked in every technological development of type design since hot metal, including the beginnings of digital font technology. Their craft skills and pre-digital experience lend integrity and quality to their type design.
Their involvement with design and typography gives them a highly individual approach to their work as type designers. This is also motivated by personal dialogue with designers from all over the world. Nothing makes them happier than when someone sends in a superb example of The Foundry fonts in use – and fortunately this happens quite often.
