Blast Foundry is the collaboration of three type designers that decided that they would be stronger together. Blast is an independent type foundry providing quality typefaces and font development services.

Blast Foundry

Our team is dedicated to producing high quality work. Our quirky fonts take the front seat on our instagram page, but we are more often than not involved in helping other foundries and studios with their font releases. Our reputation of going ‘above and beyond’ has had our clients coming back for more in the last years. We've developed strong relationships in helping other foundries such as CoType Foundry, Indian Type Foundry, and most recently Sociotype.

We believe in a united type design world, so we seek to give back to the community as much as we can – through knowledge sharing, feedback, and lectures.
