Serif redux and experimental typography
Many companies have their branding based on tipography,from small bussineses,as boutique shops that rely on embelished fonts, to huge corporations with stiff and bold fonts.
Many companies are trying to simplify their brand to be more appealing to the consumers. This leads to more cleaner and simpler tipographies. Company such as Chobani brought warmth and charm with their simplified serif font.
By using experimental typography designers can communicate basic information in complex and meaningful ways. By doing new things with typefaces designers can develop completely new syles. Often these styles can be achieved with new artistic or photographic techniques.
