Fatype is an independent type foundry established by Anton Koovit and Yassin Baggar. Fatype distributes high quality fonts and offers its know-how for the creation of exclusive taylor-made typefaces, the design of logotypes and letterings, the customisation of existing typefaces, language extensions and the optimisation of fonts for screen rendering (hinting).
Anton and Yassin formed Fatype after collaborating on the creation of typefaces for GQ France and Google.
