Fettle Foundry is an independent type foundry based in Yorkshire
We released our first commercial typeface in 2020. Since then, we have been producing typefaces that support as many features as possible.
We believe that type is the backbone of all work that designers do – particularly brand design. Over the years, as practicing designers, we have often faced the challenge of wanting to create a brand identity with a unique typeface and discovered that we can't always find one that has the features we want for a price that fits the client's budget. Being from a low income background, this is something we struggled with even more so during our years of studying. As a result, it was only a matter of time until we designed our own typefaces to meet our – and our client's – needs.
We want our typefaces to be as affordable for as many people as possible. Good, quality fonts can often be expensive, and young designers and organisations with low budgets and extensive licensing requirements can sometimes be priced out of using certain typefaces. That's why our commercial fonts will always be reasonably priced – no matter the level of features we include.
We can also create bespoke typefaces for clients. If you would like to speak to us about a commission, please get in touch.
