  • About the FDI Type Foundry

    fdi.jpgWe are offering a library of contemporary typefaces and revivals designed by talented European type designers for use in print and digital publishing. FDI Type was founded in 2004. The name comes from the original web domain “fonts dot info”. Since 2015, the foundry is part of a network of typography websites run by Schriftkontor Ralf Herrmann. Other current projects are Typography.Guru, Typografie.info and Letter Library.  

    FDI Type is run from Weimar, Germany. The city where the Bauhaus was founded and where Justus Erich Walbaum published his famous Walbaum-Antiqua typeface. 

    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us in English or German.
