Type specialist Monotype has broken new ground with the launch of its Foundry Program. Two years in the making, the initiative is free to join, and gives type designers increased visibility, a range of analytics and marketing tools and an enhanced royalty model intended to provide a consistent revenue stream.

Foundries and type designers using the Monotype Foundry Program get a dedicated, brandable page on MyFonts and Monotype Fonts, a 'business hub' analytics dashboard and self-service tools to upload and manage type designs. With over 1,500 foundries and type designers already signed up, we spoke to Mary Catherine Pflug, Monotype's director of partner product and operations, to learn more. See our guide to the best free fonts for more type inspiration.
