Colophon is an international, award-winning type foundry based in London (UK) and Los Angeles (US). We create, publish, and distribute high-quality retail and custom typefaces for analog and digital media.
Since 2009, Colophon has tasked itself with producing fonts that are composed with aesthetic and technological care, prompting a reputable library of new classics that couple typographic history with contemporary sensibilities. In tandem with its own designs, the foundry hosts original typefaces drawn by influential practitioners from varied design disciplines. The resulting catalogue offers graphic designers and users-of-type a series of indelible digital tools, each with a distinct typographic identity.
Colophon Foundry’s self-initiated and commissioned work in type design is complemented by independent and collaborative initiatives in publishing , editing / curation, exhibition-making, and teaching, with a focus on local and international partnerships with institutions of all sizes.
