Optimo is a Geneva-based type foundry established in 1998. The company publishes original typefaces designed by influential designers such as François Rappo, Ludovic Balland, Joost Grootens or Team 77. All Optimo fonts are available exclusively from this website.
Optimo was originally founded at ECAL (University of Arts and Design Lausanne) as a bachelor project by Gilles Gavillet, Stéphane Delgado and David Rust to release their own fonts. Over the years, the foundry slowly developed a library of classic typefaces available for print, web, and mobile environments. We aim to produce high quality fonts, technologically crafted with care, that offer graphic designers a long-term tool and distinctive identity. In addition to our retail library, we offer custom versions of our typefaces for clients who need tailor-made designs. Projects for the The New York Times Magazine or Vogue are on display in the Custom section.
Our office hours are Monday to Friday from 9am to 6pm on Central European Time (GMT+1) and we answer within 24 hours to your request.
