ULGA Type → hand lettering, custom fonts & typeface design in the UK
Hello, I'm Michael Gills and I run ULGA Type, a teeny-weeny type design & lettering studio based in the UK. Although I hop between Suffolk and Norfolk, I take on font and lettering commissions from all over the world.
Font design & lettering services
My services cover typeface design, custom font design, lettering, monogram design, logo design and calligraphy. Whether it's a small piece of lettering or a multi-weight family of fonts, every project is lovingly crafted with the same care and attention to detail.
Independent UK type foundry
ULGA Type also doubles up as a type foundry with a modest output of predominantly display fonts including Agatized Formal, Rahere Roman Display, ULGA Grid and Rahere Esoteric. Rahere Sans is a six-weight humanist sans-serif family with corresponding italics.

Latest type design from ULGA Type
Rahere Informal is the latest typeface design from Suffolk/Norfolk-based type designer, Michael Gills. It's a slab semi-serif typeface with a seriously charming personality and a little spring in its step. The family consists of 6 weights & 12 styles and is part of the extended Rahere typeface family, which includes Rahere Sans & Rahere Slab.
