ShyFoundry Fonts is an independent type foundry based in Omaha, Nebraska, and is the home of font designer Derek Vogelpohl. Derek began designing fonts back in late 1995 under the name of ShyFonts Type Foundry. From 1995-2001, he designed numerous shareware and freeware fonts, releasing well over 100 font families (700+ fonts).
After several years of working on various other projects, Derek returned to designing fonts in 2008. He reopened his original foundry under a new name, ShyFoundry Fonts, and continues to design new font families. Although ShyFoundry Fonts has switched completely to commercial fonts and no longer releases any new shareware or freeware fonts, the original ShyFonts Type Foundry library is still available for download.
