Hoefler & Co.
The Hoefler Type Foundry is a design studio in New York, USA, set up in 1989 by Jonathan Hoefler and specialising in original typeface development. His typeface designs include Hoefler Text for Apple Computer, provided as part of the Macintosh operating system.
In 1999 Tobias Frere-Jones left Font Bureau to join Hoefler, and in 2004 the company became Hoefler & Frere-Jones. In 2014 Frere-Jones left the company, and the company was renamed Hoefler & Co.
President Barack Obama famously used Hoefler & Co.’s Gotham for his campaign, and both the Biden-Harris campaign and the Biden White House are defined by the Hoefler & Co. typefaces Decimal and Mercury.
In September 2021 Hoefler & Co. was acquired by Monotype.
