Welcome to Ek Type. We are a collaborative type design studio based in Mumbai, India that specialises in developing fonts across all Indian languages, many of which are multi-script. In several Indian languages, ‘Ek’ is synonymous to ‘one’. ‘Ek’ type thus exemplifies what we stand for by serving as an open, collaborative platform under ‘one’ roof to develop and sell fonts, inviting others to be a part of our team.
Giving adequate importance to script grammar and script tradition, we produce standardised fonts in multiple weights, supporting multiple software platforms for a wide range of applications.
We comprise of experienced type designers, researchers and academicians spanning a wide age group whose varied skill sets complement each other. Apart from developing and selling fonts, we create documentations and awareness about Indian typography. In addition to this, we mentor upcoming type designers by engaging them in the process of font development and subsequently provide them with a platform to showcase their work.
