Almost all of our work at one point or another comes down to "Type". We type emails and proposals, we design or decided on a type for a brand, we choose directions based on the type of client we're working with and emphasize their type throughout our design process. We type. They type. We all type.
What a word! A simple four-letter encapsulation of what we do here at Firebelly. We type. And we type really well.
This is why we're excited to announce our entry in the Type Directors Club 60th Annual Communication Design Competition. Win, lose, or draw (no pun intended), we hope that our "type" of work (pun definitely intended) is recognized for what it is: good design for good reason™. Entries are accepted through December 13th, so don't miss out! Type on!
