At Formist Foundry we strive to be progressive and inventive by challenging our own expectations of what type design can be. While we are concerned with the integrity of typographic communications, we understand that creativity, personality and abstraction are equally as important as style, clarity and legibility. Inevitably, we employ our intuition and rigour to produce typography that we hope you will find useful and meaningful.
