At the end of last year, award-winning independent type foundry Colophon announced that after almost 15 years of going solo, it was joining Monotype. 

Colophon has created custom type for many notable brands, including Burger King, Instagram, Google, Canva and Central Saint Martins and its library includes 85 font families. To find out more about the merger, as well as chat about the type industry in general, I caught up with Colophon's co-founder Anthony Sheret (above, left).
