Underscore’s main focus is on designing and producing fonts. We are happy to work with our clients on bespoke fonts for their brand, organization or product. The process for creating a custom typeface is involved and has many facets from initial review of needs to inception and iteration of the design to finally producing fonts that work across devices and operating systems. Underscore can assist from early concept development, type direction to creating full fledged display and text typeface families.
Underscore offers a helping hand with the technical aspects of creating fonts. We assists clients with all the stages involved in the font production process. We are happy to help produce fonts from logotypes or lettering, expand font language coverage and family ranges of existing fonts, as well as expanding the range of weights and styles. You can get quality help also in the more technical phases of font production: Drawing, metrics, kerning, hinting, mastering.
