Fort Builds Fonts
From there, the foundry quickly and surprisingly took off with that initial typeface and each subsequent release making their way onto “Hot New Fonts” lists. The side-project soon became a full-time endeavor and passion to build well-crafted type. During its first year, the foundry went under the name of Hold Fast Foundry with its sole focus on type design. A change in name and vision was on the horizon.
Fort Builds Goods
A desire had been welling up over that year to do something more—to connect the digital nature of producing type today with something physical for people to enjoy. That idea brought about the launch of this new site, brand, and vision. Fort will without a doubt continue to design type, but the foundry has now broadened its scope by adding goods alongside fonts.
What’s In Store
From time to time, Fort will produce limited edition type specimens in the form of apparel, posters, or books to go alongside the release of a new typeface. We will also carry an assortment of goods that relate to type, design, or the brand. Whatever Fort produces, we hope it's not only useful, but also enjoyable in your life. Never quit building.
