ABOUT. FontHaus was the first independent digital font retailer in the US. Its market includes any graphic designer wanting fonts that were not included (bundled) with their "new" desktop computers. At that time, fonts were promoted in mailings and advertising and were delivered by traditional mail services on 8 inch, 5-1/4 inch, and 3-1/2 in "floppy disks".
The company was founded in 1990 by Mark Solsburg, former Type Graphics Marketing Director for International Typeface Corporation (ITC), former President of the Type Directors Club in New York, member of the AIGA, ADC/NY, ATypeI and current partner in Typobrand LLC. The FontHaus name was conceived by Elfi Lechleitner and its logo was designed by Jonathan Hoefler. The logo font is Raleigh Gothic Condensed designed by Morris Fuller Benton in 1932. In 1994, FontHaus increased its size and reach when it acquired FACES Ltd., the first independent font retailer in the UK. After 9 successful years as a FontHaus company across the pond, FontHaus sold Faces to Monotype,(UK) in 2003.

The company's suppliers include well-known foundries such as Adobe, ITC, Monotype, Linotype, MVB, ATF, Paratype, and URW, plus the up and coming from the world’s most talented new designers such as LucasFonts, Latinotype, Laura Worthington, Fenotype, Mark Simonson, MVB, TypeType, Paratype, Parachute, Joe Bob, Yellow Design, Shinn Type, and Fontfabric.

FOTOS. In 2011, FontHaus partnered with Louis Ingram, owner of IngImage, a leading stock image provider based in London. The plan was to present and offer FontHaus’s font buyers a new and large inventory of Royalty-Free Photo images, Vector files, and Video clips to compliment FontHaus’s strength: digital fonts.

TYPOBRAND.® FontHaus, in close alliance with Typobrand, a specialized typographic design and consulting firm, offers creative and affordable typographic solutions to help businesses develop brands through the effective use of type.
We stress the importance of a whole-project approach. While design considerations are often the primary focus, the design is just one of many important factors that affect cost and brand implementation. How type is selected or developed, licensed and distributed should be considered in tandem with design issues to best understand all options available, determine realistic budgets, and make informed decisions.
TypoBrand’s principals have provided custom font services or coordinated corporate font licensing for AARP, American Express, Bank of America, The Condé Nast Publications, Fast Company, Grey Advertising, Deutsch Advertising, Disney, FutureBrand, Goldman Sachs, H&R Block, Harper Collins, HBO, The Howard Company, International Typeface Corporation, Mellon New England, Microsoft, Nike, Penguin Random House, Touch Tunes, Pixar, and Sony Music.
