About Arkitype

Arkitype was founded in 2016 by Andrew Footit. Arkitype is a boutique design studio and type foundry dedicated to providing professional grade type design, illustrative typography and branding.

As a traditional graphic designer largely focused in typography, I have gained a lot of insight into what designers are looking for in a high quality font. Keeping the designer in mind, I create quality fonts that are functional and attractive.

When working on a new typeface I like to focus on a particular direction or theme, this gives me a good idea on the look and feel that the typeface should have. As a designer I then ask myself what am I looking for in this typeface and how would I use it, the end result is a typeface that is functional and has solid design thinking behind it.
