This page will provide background information on R9 Type+Design including getting to know the team behind the cool typefaces, and a contact form.
We’re a nifty type foundry from Vancouver, Canada
We believe that great design emerges from the perfect balance between form and function. This belief exists in everything we do. It’s why we ensure that our typefaces are not only well crafted but also user-friendly, versatile and full of design features and alternates. Next time you’re creating a new design project, give our fonts a try.
