Recently, D&AD invited Panos Vassiliou, who was appointed President of the Type Design Competition, to write an article on how typography affects the visual language of a brand. Here, in a few sentences, you will find out how typography has become the star of the visual communications industry and why it is so important for your company to invest in its own custom typeface.
A bespoke typeface elevates a brand's identity. But sometimes it is the financial benefit of going bespoke that really, truly, matters.
Parachute® is more than a type foundry. It is an experimental space, a typographic playground expressed in a design studio, showroom and concept store under one roof with our creative hub Typeroom®. A place to experiment, play and create. Our team is a small visionary group of type designers, graphic designers, font engineers and copywriters who have effectively collaborated with leading international organizations to incorporate complex custom type design into their brand’s strategic plan and convey their message in style. We use the power of typography to transform living brands to global brands and local leaders to next-generation global leaders. Our work has earned numerous accolades with top honours from TDC, Red Dot, European Design Awards, Tokyo TDC, HiiiBrand, German Design Awards, Communication Arts and many others.

Jetta, Volkswagen's iconic car, is reimagined by MetaDesign as a sub-brand for China’s young millennials. It is designed to provide affordable German design and engineering and compete with locally manufactured entry level brands. The challenge is to reinvent it with a younger personality, modern design language and attitude. Backed by a bold colour palette and robust typography, the overall visual feel is energetic, optimistic and young. We modified one of our typefaces to comply with Volkswagen's requirements which included use on print, digital and on the vehicle's instrument panels.
