  • Brand Type Assessments : For companies in the early stages of a rebrand, undertaking new product or service launches, or repositioning in the face of new competitive pressures, a brand type assessment should be the first step. Experts from the Monotype Studio will:
    • Determine the consistency, relevance and impact of a brand’s voice;
    • Review the effectiveness of sizing, color, contrast, legibility, scalability, global and style cohesiveness and consistency across consumer touchpoints;
    • Evaluate the health and strength of key competitors’ type systems; and
    • Gauge the performance of font data to determine brand consistency and clean rendering of type across all environments.
  • Modified Type Design : For companies looking to refresh or modernize their brand identity without a complete overhaul of their type system, the Monotype Studio can refashion existing typefaces to better capture the personality and originality of a brand.
  • Custom Type Design : Brands that are looking to develop a unique visual voice can work with the Monotype Studio on a bespoke typeface. The design and technical expertise of the Monotype Studio will help ensure the custom type is aligned with the essence of the brand, easy to deploy and looks its best across all platforms.

Monotype type designers can help pair new typefaces within an existing brand infrastructures, determine ideal options for expanding into new geographies and advise on critical elements like legibility.
