In addition to making great retail typefaces, Delve Fonts is often commissioned to create custom or “bespoke” typefaces for clients. Why might an organization commission the design of a new typeface?

One reason is to ensure brand uniqueness. Since retail typefaces are available for licensing by the general public, using one can result in the external dilution of your brand. A new bespoke typeface tailored precisely to your organization’s needs visually reinforces your brand.

Another benefit is cost-effectiveness. Annual license fees add up over time, increasing with the scale and scope of use. The fee structure for a bespoke typeface is negotiated at the outset to fit within your budget. And finally, a bespoke typeface will also allow for consistent typography in communications and trouble-free vendor workflow.

Drive efforts to prepare your brand and communications by having your company’s fonts ready for use in those markets with the necessary language support built in. Delve Fonts can create a new font or extend your existing typeface to include Arabic, Greek, Hangul, Thai, Hebrew, Cyrillic, Devanagari, and many other scripts. The fonts can be made Unicode compliant or custom encoded for use with proprietary devices and software. We build reliable, accurate multilingual typefaces that will meet your requirements and will perform as expected.

Your typeface, upgraded.

Have your company’s legacy proprietary fonts extended to support additional languages for new markets, add new weights and styles, optimize fonts for on­screen use, or add some typographic refinements with Open­Type features.
