A community of like-minded type nerds who want you to level up your type skills.

Whether you're just getting started in the world of type design or an established graphic designer who used to set entire printed books in lead — we believe the path to progress is together.

Our catalogue of open-source fonts has historically come from a hand-selected group of talented and amazing designers, but The League is more than that — this is a place where people can come together to learn, help each other, and feel empowering to make amazing things.

We have 11,583 email subscribers, 16,902 loyal Twitter followers, and literally billions in font downloads each week across the web; we're designers, developers, writers, typographers, and type nerds ourselves.

Our free email courses have gotten buckets of amazing feedback, with thousands of successful Type Club graduates over the last decade.

You can be one of them.
