Underware is a graphic design studio which is specialized in designing and producing typefaces. These are often conventional in terms of legibility – yet functional, having concepts that seek for new visual, typographic and linguistic possibilities. These typefaces are published for retail sale or are custom designed.
The company was founded in 1999 by Akiem Helmling, Bas Jacobs and Sami Kortemäki.
Underware is based in Den Haag, Helsinki and Amsterdam.
