Bespoke type by Village
..............................

We have created custom types in a range of styles, from more traditional (for American Express's Membership Rewards program) to very contemporary, (for the Syfy television network,) with stops in-between, including the work for the Alliance for Climate Protection, to the typeface we created for the New York City Opera, which IS their brand.

For many clients, both big and small, It makes a lot of sense for them to have a custom typeface. For companies which want to assure a uniformly exceptional experience for their clients and employees, and want to have a completely unified communication strategy, it is incredibly helpful to that have a bespoke typeface. Also, having "Client Type" as the only allowed option makes the use of rogue fonts a lot less likely.

In many cases, it is actually more economically viable for a company to commission a new or customised design than it is to buy licensing for their whole company, with the added benefit of having something unique to them which reinforces their brand.

We can usually work with any client on any project despite limitations, budgetary and otherwise. If you only have a few handfuls of dollars or Euros we can tell you what we are able to do for you within that budget.
