TIGHTYPE is an independent type design collective, established by Fabian Fohrer and Fabian Huber in 2015. Currently working from Providence, USA and Cologne, Germany, we try to provide visually strong typefaces for people who value contemporary type design.
We are always interested in collaborations with designers, photographers and publishers around the world — please feel free to drop us a line if you have any questions or project inquiries at any time!
For testing purposes we offer trial versions of our typefaces. Trials are restricted to uppercase and lowercase letters (no accents), numbers and a few symbols and do not include kerning. Request Trials
By receiving, purchasing, downloading, installing, using or otherwise handling our fonts, you accept the terms of this agreement. This agreement replaces and supersedes any previously made oral or written proposals or agreements between you and TIGHTYPE. If you do not accept the terms, you can not download or request or use our fonts.
Do not share, distribute, illegally copy, steal from a licensed user or re-sell our fonts.
Purchased fonts will always remain copyrighted to us.
The purchase of a fonts makes the buyer a licensed user of the fonts, not an owner. The fonts may only be used for the specific amount of users (desktop licenses), page views (web licenses) or downloads (app licenses) purchased.
Fonts are allowed to be passed onto a pre-press service or printer for output only. Contractors are not allowed to actively create new documents with fonts that have been passed on for output only. If any modification is to be made by a non-licensee, then a new licence must be purchased for that user.
Embedding of the font software in other software or devices or in any other form whatsoever requires the purchase of a special licence. Please contact us to discuss further details.
We do not allow users to make modifications to our fonts. You must contact us to discuss any modifications as a bespoke project.
The use of our fonts in any racist, homophobic, transphobic or sexist context is prohibited.
Although every effort has been taken to check our fonts for viruses, in no circumstance whatsoever do we take responsibility for damage caused to a users hardware, software or a loss of income that may have occurred as a result. All font software installed is done so at the owners risk and we will not be held responsible.
We try to produce our fonts to the highest standards. If you do experience any difficulties with our fonts, we will do everything that we can to work with you to resolve any issues. We do not take on any liability in this transaction. You are using the fonts on your own risk.
Any breach of the terms of this agreement shall be cause for termination. We will pursue with legal action if you are found to be using our fonts illegally.
We reserve the right to update our licence agreement at any time without prior consent or notice.
