We're just going to say it, the font a brand uses can make a whole lot of difference to how they are perceived. We're not just talking about avoiding the usage of Comic Sans at all costs. There's more work – and passion – that goes behind creating impactful typography. Typography is an art on its own and has the ability to create a statement. We round up the creatives in our city who champion this art form. You may have just seen their works around.
