WOBURN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Monotype today announced that it has enriched its Mosaic solution, adding 50 font families as a result of the company’s recent acquisition of Fontsmith - providing creative professionals with a deeper, more diverse and edgy collection of fonts to prototype and use with unlimited desktop rights.
The addition of the Fontsmith IP brings approximately 50 new colorful and workhorse brand font families to the Monotype Library, including popular designs such as FS Albert®, FS Brabo®, FS Koopman™, FS Meridian™, FS Millbank® and FS Untitled®. Adding these designs to Monotype’s Mosaic solution provides designers with a more diverse inventory, and IT and Procurement professionals with an easier way to manage font distribution, sharing and collaboration across their organization.
All typefaces in Mosaic are cleared for unlimited desktop usage. Creatives no longer have to waste creative cycles, budget and time because they picked the “wrong font” for a project. Fontsmith designs can also be licensed directly through Monotype’s direct sales channel.
“In our discussions with hundreds of respected brands and agencies, the work of the Fontsmith designers has long been regarded as some of the most innovative and inspiring,” said Deborah Gonet, vice president of the Monotype Studio. “We’re excited to make it easier than ever for our customers to access and use those designs within Mosaic as they build or reinvent their brands and campaigns with typography.”
Additionally, Monotype has added the type design team from Fontsmith to the Monotype Studio, deepening its bench of expertise, particularly in EMEA.
Jason Smith, founder of Fontsmith added, “Joining forces with the Monotype Studio feels like we’ve created a super studio, where the world’s most brilliant minds in type have come together to create a pool of talent that is unmatched in the industry. Whether it’s unique or functional design, legibility, global expansion or creating a modification to an existing typeface, there is no team of designers in the world that can do it better in my view.”
Monotype empowers creative minds to build and express authentic brands through design, technology and expertise. Further information is available at www.monotype.com. Follow Monotype on Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.
