Typerepublic is an independent type foundry based in Barcelona dedicated to the design and distribution of digital fonts. Founder and principal designer Andreu Balius has experienced type design since the late 1980’s.
Founded in 2003, Typerepublic shows an exclusive collection of typefaces to be distributed throughout this website. We share an especial interest in those aspects of local style culture. Some of the typefaces are based on the Iberian typographic tradition and they are, in turn, products of a contemporary view of our local history.
In addition to our exclusive retail typefaces, Typerepublic offers custom font design that responds to customer needs and identity requirements. It offers any type design solutions, from desktop to web fonts. Also, we could provide with both Latin and non-Latin multiscript type families.
Some of the fonts in the catalog have been awarded several Certificate of Excellence in Type Design given by the Type Directors Club in New York and the Association Typographique Internationale (ATypI).
Typerepublic is above all a way of understanding typography as a powerful tool for communication, as an expression of language and a cultural asset to serve the user experience.
Typerepublic not only offers high quality fonts for both print and web purposes, but also exclusive custom type design, custom type-lettering, and customization of our retail fonts. If you would like to have a look at some of our custom type projects, visit our Custom type area.
Typerepublic gives Workshops on type design and lettering as both an introduction for beginners or a way to deepen the understanding of typography.
We also offer a range of consultation services on many aspects of typography and type design, as well as good advice on how to get the most from our fonts.
Clients include: Seat / Volkswagen group, Acciona, Victoria’s Secret, Summa Brand consultants, InterBrand, Saffron, University of La Rioja, Gobierno de La Rioja, Arte tv, Vogue, RBA, King, Proximus, Ferrovial, Signes.
