Typotheque has more than 15 years of experience in designing custom type. Custom type may include modifications of our retail fonts, creation of different language versions of our fonts (Greek, Cyrillic, Arabic, etc), or entirely new fonts made to fit your needs.
The price estimate for a custom typeface consists of two components: 1) development cost of the typeface, which we calculate based on the estimated time required, and 2) the licensing fee, which is determined by the clientʼs request. There are three different licensing possibilities: a non-exclusive licence (the custom typeface can be used by other people), a partially-exclusive licence (fonts are exclusive only for a limited period of time, e.g. 2 or 5 years), or an exclusive licence (the client buys out the rights to the fonts forever). In general, we recommend partial exclusivity, as it is the most economic solution. As with everything in life, visual identities tend to change, so buying all rights to a typeface is rather costly if the fonts will only be used for a few years.
