About Foundry Monoline
Foundry Monoline is an elegant, modern well-crafted typeface, which is particularly suitable for branding, promotional, and advertising use. The comprehensive family of twelve styles: Ultra Light, Light, Regular, Medium, Bold, and Extra Bold, all with corresponding italics allows great flexibility in editorial and information hierarchy. The outer Ultra Light and Extra Bold styles give an extra dimension when the typeface is used across body copy and headlines; the letterforms are particularly beautiful when used at larger sizes.
The clean, linear appearance of Foundry Monoline has been created using a structured grid system. It is a deceptively simple design – careful optical adjustments have been made to give the appearance of a single-thickness stroke, producing a superbly crafted and workable typeface.
Foundry Monoline’s concept all started In 2000 when David lived for one year in Wiesbaden, Germany. Every day he would stroll through the town and see how few typefaces the Germans used on their shop signs. There were plenty of san serif typefaces used, mainly Helvetica or Akzidenz on the more traditional shops or bars, or a variant of Fraktur. One day a shop selling everything for elderly people on the corner of Kapellenstraße, changed its sign. Now in metre high Eurostyle, black on a white perspex background, that lit up the whole neighbourhood at night. David thought ‘unsympathetic it looked’. Immediately, David proceeded to draw a squarish typeface, sketching on a paper napkin while drinking coffee on a terrace one sunny Spring morning – Monoline was born.
