About H&Co

Hoefler&Co has been called the most influential type foundry of the twenty-first century. With a distinguished library of more than 1,300 original typefaces that includes Gotham, Knockout, Archer, Surveyor, Mercury, Tungsten, Chronicle, and Sentinel, H&Co is famous for creating long-lived typefaces marked by both high performance and high style. Since 1989, H&Co has worked with brand leaders in every sector, creating the print, web, and mobile typefaces through which the world’s foremost publications, institutions, and brands communicate. You’ll find fonts by H&Co on Twitter, at Tiffany & Co., and on every can of Coca-Cola—and on every Macintosh, iPad, and iPhone.

In 2009, the company became the first type foundry ever to be recognized by the National Design Awards at the White House, an honor they received again in 2011. H&Co’s typefaces have been exhibited internationally, and are in the permanent collections of both the Smithsonian Institution and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

About Jonathan

Jonathan Hoefler has been designing typefaces for nearly thirty years.

He writes and illustrates the H&Co blog at, and in 2016 created his first short film about typeface design.

Hoefler is the only person to have ever received both the Prix Charles Peignot, the prize for typographic excellence awarded by the Association Typographique Internationale, and the AIGA Medal, the design profession’s highest honor. He lives in New York.
