Monotype Imaging Debuts ESQ Mobile Brand

Monotype Imaging is launching its ESQ Mobile brand of fonts through the introduction of more than 200 designs tailored for exceptional viewing on mobile phones. The latest selection builds upon the company's 13 fonts released in June as the industry's first typeface collection that enables developers, content providers, wireless operators and handset manufacturers to enhance mobile products through scalable, stylistic fonts.

Monotype Imaging's ESQ Mobile fonts are derived from the company's Monotype and ITC font libraries, in addition to new selections from the Linotype Library. In addition to more than 200 designs based on the Latin-1 character set and standard TrueType and OpenType font formats, the ESQ Mobile collection now includes a Simplified Chinese font fine-tuned with Monotype Imaging's SmartHint technology. The new, patent-pending method works with the company's iType 3.0 font engine to enable the high-quality display of complex East Asian text, scaled to small sizes.
