TrulyType is an Swedish based type publisher, founded in 2014 by type-designer Karl Kerner. It is used as a platform to produce and distribute autonomous typefaces made in close collaboration with a growing number of artists, institutions, writers and designers. Related to the content, every typeface has its own rule of appearance and distribution, varying from house-to-house to exclusive ones. Our purpose is to form new concepts loaded with character. Over the past few years, we have developed an worldwide reputation for producing elegant, innovative fonts across multiple platforms.
Our type foundry has always been a welcoming environment and is designed for open communication. Occasionally, TrulyType also curates exhibitions and we try to remain actively involved in various events and give workshops. Personalities turn to us to achieve the greatest potential of given conditions. When possible, we reach all expectations. Every now and then, we exceed them.
We offer two internships per year. From January–July and September–December. If you are interested please send a CV and portfolio showing relevant design work.
