Since establishing Bold Monday in 2008, founders Paul van der Laan and Pieter van Rosmalen have been pouring their vast experience into the project, and their foundry has slowly and resolutely built a reputation for releasing first-rate, imaginative typefaces.

In this tremendous article Sébastien Morlighem profiles the founders of this innovative independent foundry for Fontstand.

They discuss the history of the foundry (and their careers) the nature of their collaboration and the foundries milestones.

“What makes type design so exciting to me nowadays is that never before have we had access to so many powerful tools for making fonts. And never before have we had access to so much knowledge about font technology, type history, and writing systems.” — Paul van der Laan
