Microsoft Mobile

You work hard, now play hard and...

Give it some wellie

Nokia Devices and Services has joined the Microsoft family and our new journey has begun. It's an exciting time. We are unifying our passion, dedication and commitment to bring the best of what our joint technologies have to offer. Together, we can connect and empower people with one experience for everything in their life in a world where it is mobile first and cloud first.

As Microsoft Mobile, we will continue to produce, sell and support the phones and devices that people have come to love. Now more than ever, our role is to support every aspect of people's lives to help them have a richer, fuller experience every day with connectivity, information, friendship and fun. Not tomorrow or sometime soon, but today. That's why Microsoft Mobile will continue to create devices and experiences that empower people to look at the world with new eyes, to reach out and take risks, to push themselves, express themselves, share more and grow.

Nokia + Microsoft. Everything just became a lot more colourful.

The Drum

There's no greater excuse than Podge to...

Push the Boat Out

The Drum have been great supporters of the Podge lunches over the last few years in London and Manchester and as well as having a regular magazine covering the creative industries they also run several great awards events such as the DADI awards (10th October at the Marriott Grosvenor Square) The Roses awards, The Chip Shop awards, the Social Buzz awards and others. Particular thanks to founders Gordon & Diane Young and Nick Creed for whom nothing is too much trouble when it comes to supporting Podge lunches.

From the early days of typesetting by hand, through to the evolution of web typography, Monotype has a long and constantly evolving typographic history. Whether it's meticulously formed type from the 1800s, or hand-hinted typefaces for new digital environments, we have always celebrated and supported the craftsmanship that underpins type design.

Our libraries feature iconic typefaces including the Helvetica, Frutiger and Univers families, as well as contemporary releases from the Monotype Studio. Monotype has also designed custom typefaces for brands including Vogue, Sony, Centrefold and The Times.

Wherever you see type, now and in the future, there's a good chance Monotype will be behind it.
