Underware is a graphic design studio which is specialized in designing and producing typefaces. These are often conventional in terms of legibility – yet functional, having concepts that seek for new visual, typographic and linguistic possibilities. Up to date, Underware’s creations have received many awards – TDC New York’s Certificate of Excellence in Type Design has been granted for Auto, Bello, Fakir and Sauna, while Dolly became a Bukvaraz Winner in Moscow 2002. The company was founded in 1999 by Akiem Helmling, Bas Jacobs and Sami Kortemäki. Underware is based in Den Haag, Helsinki and Amsterdam. For more than ten years the pan-European design collective Underware has been creating versatile fonts, surfing the waves, conducting type workshops, running a radio station Typeradio together with DBXL & LoveLiza, practicing kamikaze chess; but mostly, they gave flowers for their mothers and turned them into a cover girl. Which resulted in an everlasting smile on their faces. ––– Please note: Underware has discounts for multi-user font licenses from 2 users on (not shown on this site).
