As the name Font Factory suggests, custom font creation has formed a major part of the work understaken for a wide variety of clients. These have ranged from the creation of an entirely new font to the customisation of an existing design by modifying a few characters to the simple addition of custom symbols and logotypes.
To quote but a few examples, corporate fonts have been created for Bowater International, The Royal Free Hospital, Wiggins Teape and Freshfields. A total of ten fonts were designed for the Supermarket, Sainsbury's, and the chief executive so liked the design that he adopted it for their corporate identity. An inline font was digitised for Lloyds Bank which has since then appeared on all their posters and literature. Similarly, a headline font based on Vogue Didot condensed was created for the Royal Academy of Arts magazine. For the John Lewis Partnership, three fonts were created for a new price ticket system. For Blueprint architectural magazine, a headline face was developed based upon a metal design from the last century. For the Scottish newspaper, The Scotsman, a font was created based upon the masthead of that paper and recently an entirely new font was developed in collaboration with Michael Johnson and Mike Pratley for BT Cellnet. A braille typeface has been developed to aid the production of signage for the blind and a font has even been created for a letter-cutting machine for monuments. Further custom fonts can be seen on the examples page.
Whatever your requirements, the Font Factory can almost certainly meet your needs—from simple fonts for design and print to enhanced legibility screen fonts for web use.
