Monokrom joins Typekit

Welcome to the blog archives! This blog post is a little out of date now, and fonts from Monokrom are no longer available in the Typekit library. Please contact this foundry directly for information on licensing their fonts.

The original post is available below.


Please join us in welcoming Monokrom to Typekit. Just two weeks ago, this new Norwegian foundry by Frode Helland and Sindre Bremnes opened its doors with a small catalog of thoughtfully crafted type — “high quality, original designs with a Nordic touch.” For starters, Faunus, Telefon, and Vinter are available in the Typekit library. These are for use at larger-than-body-text sizes, but are not all display faces.

Top to bottom: Vinter Regular and Italic, Telefon Bold, and Faunus

Each of these Monokrom typefaces is rich in character: Vinter evokes the sweeping chill of Norwegian wintertime; Telefon, the warmth and romance of a bygone visual language; and Faunus, the lively blend of pen, ink, sunlight, and earthy, wooded landscape. The Monokrom site has a page about each design.

Upgrade to a Portfolio plan or higher to use Monokrom fonts. If you’ve never given Typekit a try, sign up (it’s free!) and upgrade to a paid plan whenever you’re ready.
