Black[Foundry] is a type design company dedicated to creating, refining and producing fonts

Founded in 2014, the company is born out of the meeting of a serial French entrepreneur and type designer Grégori Vincens, with a London-raised type designer and font engineer Jérémie Hornus. Today, Black[Foundry] is an international team of 12 talents, including type designers, font developers, art directors, software engineers, programmers and project managers, all working from central Paris with connections around the globe.

Our clients vary greatly, in size, reach and sector but they all have one thing in common: they live in a connected world. And so do we.

Lean workflow

As type designers and engineers, we’ve developed a series of tools and software to create, test and manage our fonts effectively. Our custom-built tools lie at the heart of our Type+Tech® approach. We’re happy to share some of them with you on GitHub. All comments and contributions are welcome.
