Face it, good design is good business. The web design process includes gaining a thorough understanding of YOUR target audiences, gathering specific technical requirements, creating a functional, easy-to-navigate web architecture, and creating a memorable, highly-visual representation of your company, campaign, or project.
Strong typography is one of the most integral aspects of your visual message. While heavily influenced by Bauhaus principles, specialized custom typographic design, letterforms, fonts, expressive typography, movie titles, emblems, visual marks, fonts, and typography on the web is part of an ever-growing creative practice.
Alongside with custom typography, fonts are the very basis of any brand or marketing message. DSGN CO creates and converts custom typefaces and letterforms into a usable, and scalable (.ttf) font format for continued use in our client's desired needs.
The foundation of all great design is even greater branding. DSGN CO has defined and designed complete identity systems as well as working within existing branding systems to maximize meaning and message, global and local.
