Road to Venice Type was established to design in constructive conversation with the history of typography, reflected in or seen through a contemporary and forward oriented perspective.

The intended result conveys meaning, but stands back enough to communicate the written message and be functional in the way it is supposed to.

Road to Venice Type is directed by René Rieger. We offer retail fonts and tailor to specific needs, whether it’s expanding or changing by tone, weight, width or character set.

  • How can fonts be purchased on your site?
  • You choose a specific style or family of a typeface, then you choose a license type. To complete your order fill in the billing form and checkout with your credit card.

  • Will my purchase be refunded when the fonts don’t work as intended?
  • Please inspect carefully if the typefaces suit your needs before the purchase, we can’t offer refunds when you change your mind. For technical issues with the font please notify us and we’ll work on that.

  • Do you provide other license types other than the ones listed on your site?
  • If you intend to use our fonts in apps, for example, or any other way, get in touch.

  • Do you update your fonts?
  • We might update our fonts occasionally and you can download those updates as soon as they are available, if you’ve bought a license earlier. Just keep in mind to store the download-links that you’ve received on purchase.

  • Is my language supported by the font I am buying?
  • Please have a look at our specimens, for the supported languages.

  • Why are there sometimes strange word-number combinations shown at the front page?
  • The combinations are generated in a random fashion taken from a pool of collected words and numbers. They are meant to display the features of the typeface. No harm is intended. You can contact us, if you encounter an offensive combination and we will discuss if we remove it.

  • Do you have student discounts?
  • Students get 40% off for all our typefaces. Just e-mail us your institution and student-id and we will send you a coupon code.

    We are always interested in how our fonts are being used by you, the designer. If you have some examples of your work, we would appreciate a glance on it.
