  The Best of BP&O — Custom Typography

A collection of custom typography designed as part of a new brand identity project, reviewed and published on BP&O. Between them, these highlight how sans-serif reduction and serif flourish, and significant character or nuance can contribute to a distinctive and communicative brand identity. This selection includes inline, monolinear, extended, condensed, calligraphic, brush drawn and metal type-inspired examples, and features the graphic design studios Lundgren+Lindqvist, Designers Anonymous, Shore and Bunch, amongst many others.
