BP&O Collections — Custom Typography

Selected by Richard Baird.

  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.

Support BP&O



Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
