The Creation Story

Hogarth opened for business in 2008 in an attic room above a shop near London’s Carnaby Street. Our Internet connection came from a cable slung out of a window, and the floor sloped so much that all the chairs ran toward one corner. Eventually, we had fourteen people working in that room. This made it so full that we had to use the Brazilian coffee shop opposite us for our meetings. In memory of these roots, the founders of the company are still known as the “Attic Fourteen”.

Ryman Eco font

Hogarth has developed the world's most beautiful sustainable font

20140331 Ryman Eco
Launched during this year’s Earth Hour, Ryman Eco is both a beautiful font and a sustainable one (as it uses 33% less ink than standard fonts). Hogarth’s design team and print production studio worked with Grey London and Monotype to develop and launch Ryman Eco.

The aim of the project was to create a font that uses as little ink as possible but also remaining attractive and usable too. We didn’t want to compromise legibility for sustainability; after all the font will only help the environment if people actually use it. Hogarth’s design team and print production studio worked on a number of options during the development process. The end result of this work is ‘the world’s most beautiful sustainable font’, now available to use, share and download for free at rymaneco.co.uk
