Design stronger identities with bespoke fonts
Save time and be more creative
We know what a waste of time it can be to search for the perfect font without finding it. We also know the months it takes to draw one from scratch. That's why we built Prototypo, an online app that enables designers to customize their own typeface in a few clicks.
How does it work?
Creating a prototype for an original typeface, a custom logo for your brand/client or experimenting with type design ideas has never been so easy.
1 You need a specific font for a project
Sometimes the font perfectly fitting your project doesn’t exist. Why don’t you create it?
2 Start your project with one of our 4 parametric typefaces
The basic set starts with Prototypo Fell, Prototypo Grotesk, Prototypo Elzevir and Spectral. All our fonts are powered by our partner Production Type
3 Shape your font adjusting more than 30 parameters
Prototypo lets you tweak over thirty parameters such as thickness, aperture and roundness. You can also fine-tune the serifs separately.
4 Export your font and use it anywhere
Your fonts can be exported to .otf format that can be installed on macOS, Windows and Linux to be used in any desktop application, or displayed on a website in any browser.
They talk about Prototypo
From the beginning Prototypo rose a considerable excitement in the worldwide graphic and type communities. Today we count more than 30,000 users from over 130 countries!
A powerful tool to design your font
