Historians of the future might regard Emigre as pioneers into digital typography. Common knowledge puts Emigre, led by wife and husband duo Zuzana Licko and Rudy Vanderlans at the forefront of the digital foundry era. The foundry got its start in 1984 when Zuzana designed a series of bitmap fonts for the new Macintosh from Apple Computer. For nearly two decades Emigre put out Emigre Magazine, a monthly publication of the same name, with thoughtful essays and articles aimed to stir up dialogue and of course drive sales of their typefaces.
