The Identikal Foundry was founded in London by identical twin brothers Adam and Nick Hayes. It was the summer of 1998 and after the use of one of their earlier typeface designs in Loaded Fashion, the brothers decided to release a full font collection. This first collection gained Identikal recognition in the world’s design and type communities, helping build the foundations of the foundry as we know it today.
Identikal has since become a well established and internationally renowned type foundry. The Identikal Foundry has output more than 450 fonts, including many inventive typefaces that have inspired the world of typeface design. The collection is popular within a variety of different mediums, including publications, TV media, multimedia, advertising campaigns and design for print. Since 2003 The Identikal Foundry has been based in New York City where the brothers continue to output original and futuristic style typefaces.
