Brief 22: Vertype

Welcome to brief 22 of The Alphabites Design Challenge.

Below you can find your brief, a few helpful tips, and a small guide to taking your entry to the next level.

Logo design brief

Design a custom wordmark for Vertype, a digital marketplace that sells and distributes fonts.

Extension task

Create a set of 4-5 high-fidelity wireframes that show how users can browse and view fonts. Consider how you could display different weights and the prices for each one.

A bite-sized tip

Before using a font in today's design, make sure you have the correct licence to use it personally or commercially. Fonts can be awkward and extremely expensive, but thankfully there are places like Adobe Fonts and Google Fonts, where you can now get fonts to use without spending a single penny. Licensing can be complicated, but it's important to double-check, so you don't have to change a font or, even worse, get sued by the designer or foundry that owns the font.
