The Type Foundry Directory is a curated list/index of type foundries by Matthew Smith. This is not intended to extensively document every type foundry (active or otherwise), but rather, this exists to better organize the foundries I’ve come to know, like, and/or find interesting while supplying the additional information that I look for when browsing foundries.
If you are looking for a more extensive list of foundries, then I might suggest exploring the Type Foundries Archive.
To filter the list below, simply click on the labels along the top row. Clicking on the "i" to the left of each entry expands the item to reveal a screenshot and more information. Alternatively, clicking on the "i" in the first row expands all of the foundry listings.
The Webfonts column only indicates self-hosted webfonts.
The Trial Fonts column does not include Fontstand’s 3-hour trial.
Educational licenses are handled differently by every foundry. While some have an educational license you can choose upon checkout, others may require you to reach out to them directly.
For the sake of simplicity, Language Support refers to both supported languages and scripts, and the listings are fairly generous. For example, if a foundry primarily produces Latin fonts, but offers one or two families with an Arabic counter-part, the Language Support section might also list Arabic.
