We live for a perfect letter. We are committed to the craft of type in every aspect of design, as we see the importance of iconic typography in the creation of resilient brand identities. Our practice is influenced by the traditions of sign-painting and lettering, whilst embracing innovation and digital workflow. Through our iconic branding, font development and spatial installations, we bridge our type obsession with informed design to build durable and memorable brands.

 

Our Clients


 

 

 

Our process at Uppercase is unorthodox and unique; we transition between a contemporary digital design practice and the savoir-faire traditionally required of sign-writers and typographers. We merge traditional craftsmanship and typographic detailing with digital design. All of our projects—from logos to large-scale public installations—begin in our sketchbooks. We often realise these sketches in digital form to allow the flexibility and efficiency needed to bring the clients projects to life.

We believe in the power of informed type design and we do everything we can to realise our clients’ visions. We’re happy to be experimental—our ideas for type development and letter-focused branding are endless.
