  • How much does it cost to commission a bespoke typeface?

    The cost depends largely on what you need;
    — a single font or a typeface family?
    — what languages do you need to support?
    — do you need additional scripts such as Cyrillic, Greek, Arabic?
    — is the font capitals only?
    — do you need small caps, superiors, a variety of number sets?
    — do you need fonts for web use?

    The design cost can start as low as £4,500 GBP. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

  • How much does it cost to have a logotype designed?

    We can work with you to realise the design of your logotype, this can include creative input from the start or we can work from a supplied design stage. Either way, our input and experience helps solve typographic problems. The cost is per letter based and covers the delivery of a single finished digital master. Separate costs are applied for logotype variants, such as reversed out or optical versions.

    Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

  • How long does it take to design a bespoke typeface?

    It takes time to design a typeface. Our commissioned typefaces reflect the high quality and attention to detail we pay to our own collection. As a guide we suggest allowing four weeks per single font, but without knowing the scope of the brief, this is very rough. If your requirement is for a large type family with extended language support and complex typographic features, then naturally it will take far longer to develop.

  • Do I own the bespoke font?

    The cost to develop a typeface covers the design and manufacture only. We generally offer a two year period of exclusive use. However, please talk to us if you wish to own exclusivity. There is no exclusivity if the bespoke typeface is a modification to one of our retail fonts.

  • What characters are included in a bespoke font?

    The size of the character set depends on your needs. However, we do suggest a minimum character set, and work with you to check and clarify any additional language support that may be required. It’s strongly advised to organise this at the start, as adding to a finished type can cause problems with versions already released and in use.

  • What license is included in a bespoke font?

    The cost to develop a typeface covers the design and manufacture only. The fonts will need to be licensed for use. It may be a simple license across a single company, or a more complex license covering the companies producing work for you. We’ll need to discuss your usage requirements with you in order to provide accurate licensing.

    You may also require a license for web or app use. 

  • Can we pass our bespoke typeface to other companies?

    All our fonts require licensing and to make this easier we deliver our bespoke typefaces via the Client area of Access is granted via a unique Username and Password. Once you or your suppliers have signed in, the fonts are made available for licensing and download.
