Just my type: Curated projects featuring typography

Your brand design–is it communicating your story and value too?

It’s something to think about for businesses that need to capture people’s attention in just seconds. Dimensional design incorporates structure, material, color, graphics and more, but the right typography bridges brands to people.

“Typography is the primary medium for the communication of the product’s name, function and fact to a broad consumer audience. Ultimately, the typography… becomes one of the most significant elements of the visual expression of the product,”  – Marianne Rosner Klimchuk and Sandra A. Krasovec “Packaging Design Successful Product Branding from Concept to Shelf.

Take a look at the five pieces we curated from our collection and see how different type styles influenced and enhanced these dimensional marketing campaigns.
