ITF was established in 2009 by Satya Rajpurohit and Peter Biľak to design and distribute fine-quality fonts for both Indian and the global market.

ITF specialises in developing retail and custom Unicode-compliant digital fonts. Besides designing typefaces, ITF also serves as an educational platform for typography.

ITF is committed to organising lectures and workshops, as well as to actively promoting the publishing and exchanging of ideas. The intention is to give the same attention to Indian typography as Latin typography has received in the last few decades.

ITF is located in Ahmedabad, India
