Bombastype was founded in 2017 by two people who had just met at some kind of designer meet-up event in Yogyakarta. By the names Bangkit Tri Setiadi and Amir Subqi Setiaji, both of them have no idea how to make a font to begin with. That’s why they’re attending that designer meet-up. A sharing meet-up about how to make a font. Then, long story short, they’re beginning to make their first font for their own brand. Being able to publish their first font is one thing, but making a decent profit from the first font is quite another thing.
Before making a font, they had another way to make a living as designers. As a result, they are unable to work as font designers full-time because creating a proper font takes time. Then, on some days, the fateful day comes. They decided to create a new collaborative font foundry account called Bombastype. And the rest is history. So basically, Bombastype is their side project.
