This directory is not intended to extensively document or list every type foundry (active or otherwise). Instead, 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. For a simpler index take a look at type.lol.
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.
Only indicates self-hosted webfonts.
Does not include Fontstand’s 3-hour trial.
If trials are available via email, the foundry’s site must specifically state so.
If a foundry offers variable fonts via email, their site must specifically state so.
Discounts and 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.
If a foundry offers student discounts via email, their site must specifically state so.
For the sake of simplicity and familiarity, 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.
Yes, I know languages and scripts are not synonymous.
Language filtering is coming soon.
If you have any additional information on a foundry that should be included in the list or see any errors, please send me an email <matthew [at] morningtype.com> or tweet at me
