Custom Typeface Design

In some instances, the best solution to a corporation's branding needs is a proprietary typeface design. Whether it’s a new and unique design or a modification of an existing typeface, an exclusive corporate font enables distinction in corporate communications.

Custom Character Sets

To address internationalization requirements, many companies have discovered that the standard character set doesn't fully meet their needs. They often require Eastern European language letterforms or a host of non-Latin characters to meet multinational requirements. Let us work with you to develop all the necessary language support you need.


TrueType fonts are common in corporate environment, as most PCs include a wide choice of TrueType fonts. As these typefaces don't require the purchase of additional software to work in Windows® environments, fonts based on the TrueType standard have become widespread.

Monotype Imaging has one of the largest offerings of TrueType fonts and can work with you to fulfill custom TrueType requirements.

Delta Hinting

TrueType fonts often need to be tuned, or "delta-hinted," to work best on screen, particularly fonts for low-resolution environments. Monotype Imaging offers ESQ® (Enhanced Screen Quality) fonts tailored for low-resolution devices. In addition, we offer ESQ Mobile fonts – typefaces that have been hinted specifically for small sizes typically used in mobile environments.


Developed jointly by Microsoft and Adobe and supported by Monotype Imaging’s compression technology, the OpenType font format comprises enhancements to the TrueType format. The OpenType standard offers multiplatform support for both Windows and Macintosh® systems. OpenType fonts accommodate large character sets and offer improved support for Internet and PDF publishing.
