Type is a brand manifestation and yet remains one of the least understood components of branding. Designers know, however, that the right typeface has always been a core element of a brand’s identity; just like all other design components such as color, imagery and tonality, every letter is a reflection of a brand.
SumAll chose Proxima Nova a few years ago because it was one of the first complete web-optimized font sets with many styles; its classic geometric sans serif design suited the brand and was not prevalent back then. Just a few months later SumAll ran into the brand issue of not being clear-cut enough. We chose to do a redesign for SumAll’s numbers. They are the most important set of characters considering SumAll is all about displaying data. The Result: Comparing the old Proxima Nova with the new set for SumAll, the numbers are much straighter and grid-based, more masculine and streamlined.
