FontShop Joins Monotype

This past week, FontShop experienced  a groundbreaking day in our 25 year history, the most important one since our formation. The US typeface company Monotype just announced that they have acquired FontShop and the FontFont library. With the acquisition, in addition to a contemporary typeface library, Monotype gains new customer groups, popular marketing tools and channels as well as a second foothold in the German market, which the group assesses as one of the most vital font markets. “Monotype’s global reach, financial strength and passion for type, combined with FontShop’s complementary typeface expertise, industry relationships and premier typeface collection, is expected to strengthen Monotype’s ability to serve global markets and deliver high-quality, branded experiences across every screen, platform or media property” says the press release published this week.
