Font Men

John Randle - Font Men

Filmed just before their recent bitter split (Frere-Jones is suing Hoefler for half of the world’s preeminent digital type foundry) this film should make for very interesting viewing.

Font Men, gives a peek behind the curtain into the world of Jonathan and Tobias. Tracking the history of their personal trajectories, sharing the forces that brought them together and giving an exclusive look at the successful empire they built together.

Before their recent split, they collectively ran the most successful and well respected type design studio in the world, creating fonts used by everyone from the Wall Street Journal to the President of the United States.
