This is an ongoing project. As the typefaces spread around the world, both to publishers and to be installed in school computers, the need for even more alternative letterforms arose. The sans serif family filled a real need for maximum legibility particularly on screen and highlighted the fact that few designers have faced up to the reality that designing for the computer screen is a new discipline with different criteria for letterforms. Now the interest is in a joined font that will be variable enough to satisfy the needs of advertisers, and educationists around the world in countries that have varying perceptions of letterforms.

Rosemary Sassoon continues as a consultant in the educational and medical aspects of handwriting while concentrating increasingly on the problems of modern communication. The layout of the screen, the relationship of illustration to text, the multi cultural aspects of letters for reading and writing as well as the impact of the computer on iconic communication all vie for attention. She continues to lecture widely, and writes and advises on the subjects that come within her areas of interest.

Since 1985, in partnership with Adrian Williams a whole range of font products for reading and handwriting education in schools has been developed until 2016.

During 1995, the FONTfitter software was developed in response to a growing number of Users making their own fonts. Given a typeface's attributes, the software accurately calculates sidebearings for the base 255 characters, saving many hours of work when converting a drawing into a digital font. From May 1996 Club Type products were being offered on the Internet. Today the typefaces are offered for Desktop and Web use.
