‘Typography is the building block of design and plays a crucial role in any brand. Owning your own unique typeface can enhance and add value to your brand, making it stand out from the crowd. It’s vitally important to set the correct tone of voice – allowing the type to articulate your brand with clarity’.

‘There is also a cachet attached to an organization owning a corporate typeface. It says a lot about the organization’s ability and interest in communication, their planning and foresight, generally their financial stability and standing in their own market and above their competitors’.
