Good Design Needs Good Fonts

Since 2001, YouWorkForThem's only mission has been to be the best source for design resources in the world. What separates us from the competition is that we were founded by designers, and are run by designers, for designers.

Over the years, YWFT narrowed focus to concentrate on providing one thing: the best fonts in the world. Then, we established two new arms of the company to handle other resources, and provide a complete, holistic solution for designers: YouWorkForThem (fonts), Nanamee (stock art) and Buamai (inspiration).

We understand that great brands need investment and care in order to retain their greatness. For us, that means investing in and caring about design and designers. Since we don't answer to shareholders or executives, we can keep overhead low and movement nimble, and you may feel free to contact us with any questions, any time. Custom licenses, creation of custom fonts, clarifications--we're happy to help.

It's our accessibility, care, and attention to detail that allows us to have brands like Apple, Wieden + Kennedy, Victoria's Secret, Nike, Diesel, Burton Snowboards, ABC News, BMW, Starbuck's Coffee, Wired Magazine, Cartoon Network, Sony Music, Coca-Cola, Samsung, Harvard University, Element Skateboards, Valve Software, American Airlines, Warner Brothers and the band U2 as just a few of our clients.

We pledge to keep exploring and advancing new visual ideas in type and stock art, and to continue to provide a usable, affordable, creative alternative to the corporate competition who focus on profit.

Our primary operations and design studio are located in Bangkok, while our project management is located in Los Angeles, so one of us is probably awake at this very moment. Let us know how we can help You work for Them.
