About Us

Fountain is an independent, friendly digital type foundry, owned and operated by Peter Bruhn. Our aim is to provide discerning clients with modern, well-crafted typefaces guaranteed to meet the most stringent requirements of aesthetics, legibility and originality.

To clients in need of a uniquely different visual identity, we offer custom typeface design, as well as improvement and adaptation of existing typefaces.

To designers looking for distinctive, fresh, contemporary typefaces, we offer a catalogue of original fonts available for on-line purchase.

The history of Fountain began in Malmö, Sweden in 1993. Complementing his work as a creative director, Peter Bruhn formed his own company with the intention of creating distinctive typefaces within their own right. Those distinctive qualities were soon discovered internationally, and quickly found use in magazines, advertising, corporate identities, and other creative works.

Several other designers have since added their own unique personal and cultural perspectives to Fountain. Our designers come from all over the world, so you’ll find no limits to what you will discover in our diverse collection.

The company itself is located in the heart of Malmö, a beautiful port city in southwestern Sweden, famous for its beautiful, lush parks. Its heritage as a port has naturally led Malmö to be a melting pot of culture and ethnicity, just like Fountain itself! A bridge linking the city to Copenhagen was built in 2000, creating a powerful economic region which will no doubt continue to boom well into the next century.

We reside on the top floor of a five story building built at the turn of the last century. Located in the city centre, the rooms are spacious with high ceilings and beautiful panoramic views, creating the ideal environment for creative pursuits.
