Road to Venice Type is a research-driven type design practice. It was established to design in conversation with the history of type, seen through a contemporary lens.

Our typefaces are drawn with care and explore themes of authorship, archetypal and emerging letter models and functionality.

Road to Venice Type is directed by René Rieger. He holds a master degree in graphic design. Our foundry develops retail fonts, tailors to specific needs and offers font production services.

How can fonts be purchased on your site?

You choose a specific style or family of a typeface, then you choose a licence type. To complete your order, fill in the billing form and check out 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 update your fonts?
We might update our fonts occasionally, and you can get those updates as soon as they are available, if you’ve bought a licence earlier. Just send us the receipt 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.
Do you have student discounts?
Students get 70% off for all our typefaces. Just e-mail us your institution and student-id, and we will send you a coupon code.
My credit card was declined. What now?
We forward your credit card details to Stripe to securely process payments. The service has its own mechanisms in place and contacts the bank of the cardholder directly. When a payment was declined, chances are high, that your bank knows why this happened.
Do I get a receipt?
On purchase, you will receive an e-mail that contains all information needed including order number, purchased font and licence type, vendor name, address and VAT-number.
We are interested in how our fonts are being used. E-mail us your work.



A desktop licence allows for the font software to be installed on a specified number of computers, in the checkout/cart referred to as seats, to create images and usually to print them.
A web licence allows for the font to be placed on a server and be displayed at the frontend of a website. The volume of the licence is dependent on the page views per month of the website.
An app licence allows for embedding the font into an application that is shipped to an end user. This licence volume depends on the number of apps that should carry the font.
For broadcasting or other licence types, please write an e-mail to mail(at)
