As Yves Saint Laurent said, “fashions fade, style is eternal.” And there ain’t no style like Underware style. For more than a decade these pan-Euro design virtuosos have been mastering scripts and opentype technology, and it is our great privilege to have them joining our library. They drop hugely versatile fonts, rock type workshops, run the Typeradio superstation, leap tall serifs in a single bound, and they do it all with the smooth style that can only come from the Netherlands.
Underware was founded in 1999 by Akiem Helmling, Bas Jacobs and Sami Kortemäki, and are based in Den Haag, Helsinki and Amsterdam. Underware’s creations have received many awards TDC New York’s Certificate of Excellence in Type Design has been granted for Auto, Bello, Fakir and Sauna, while Dolly became a Bukvaraz Winner in Moscow 2002.
