Typeland is an independent type foundry focussing on creating typefaces with vitality and original design across a range of scripts. With a broad-minded view of design possibilities, and an utterly indulgent approach, we believe in creating typefaces that we thoroughly enjoy crafting and greatly enjoy using – in other words, we design unapologetically to counter boredom and neutrality. If, in a world of excess, creative indulgence is still a crime then we stand guilty as charged and hope that our enjoyment and enthusiasm show in our work.
Typeland offers retail fonts as well as custom design.
