Customization

At TypeType, we’ve got a broad experience in creating both fully custom fonts and modified commercial fonts from our collection.
You might find some nuances of already existing fonts unsuitable for your purpos- es, or you need a completely original font in order to create unique corporate identity.

Hinting

Font hinting (also known as instructing) is the use of mathematical instructions to adjust the display of an outline font so that it lines up with a rasterized grid.
At low screen resolutions, hinting is critical for producing clear, legible text. It can be accompanied by antialiasing and (on liquid crystal displays) subpixel rendering for further clarity.
