Dutchfonts is the type foundry set up by graphic designer Ko Sliggers to develop and sell his typedesigns. From 1979 typography has always been a vital ingredient in his graphic design. Painted and drewn letterforms gave his work an unmistakable typographic identity. From 1997 his designs were made with self-designed typefaces. In the various typefaces he developped, he tried to bring back irregularity as an articulation of a personal ‘hand-made’, human approach and expression. The fonts are partially based on, and inspired by found, vernacular letterforms. Dutchfonts is typically Dutch in the sense that it combines precision and rationality with dada-like anarchism and irreverence.
