Last week, designer Tobias Frere-Jones, a longtime employee of The
Hoefler Type Foundry, Inc. (d/b/a “Hoefler & Frere-Jones”),
decided to leave the company. With Tobias’s departure, the
company founded by Jonathan Hoefler in 1989 will become known as
Hoefler & Co.
Following his departure, Tobias filed a claim against company
founder Jonathan Hoefler. Its allegations are not the facts, and
they profoundly misrepresent Tobias’s relationship with both the
company and Jonathan. […] It goes without saying that all of us
are disappointed by Tobias’s actions. The company will
vigorously defend itself against these allegations, which are
false and without legal merit.
