Our Managing Director Sid was one of the speakers at Adfest, Thailand
Hello and welcome to Brand New Type, a creative company embedded in socio-cultural values where everything thing we do has a unique sense of purpose and direction; all the way from typeface design to creating brand experiences.
BNT envisages a world where everyone can (and should) have access to their own custom typeface(s), unique to their identity and individuality.
The BNT logotype is set in BNT Blunt typeface which is inspired by Johannes Gutenberg’s typeface developed in 1455 and used in the first book ever printed with movable type.
Based on the traditional letter construction of Gutenberg’s typeface, BNT Blunt is built to reflect BNT’s values — unique, contextual, bold and grounded.
We believe there is a lot we can do together.

He believes that today commerce is at the intersection of design, technology and socio-cultural impact; resulting in corporations reconfiguring their purpose to help make the world a better place and propounds the need for marketing to also start reconfiguring itself.
We develop typefaces for specific needs and purpose – be it a custom typeface for a brand that embodies its personality giving it a distinct look and appeal or text and display fonts for publications to improve their readability and typographic expressions. We specialise in developing multi-script typefaces to address the growing need for a truly globalised world.
We design and create engaging product + brand + digital experiences across platforms [ATL + BTL] and ensure that you get a compelling voice that is heard, remembered and interacted with.
We help add the rigour through our brand / creative strategy practice based on an outsourced CMO model; helping clients have more upstream conversations, adding depth and meaning to performance led marketing.
We are invested in democratising the world of type & typography through research, workshops and outreach and so, coming soon is our brand new type of school in Goa.
This school will be a creative collaborative space where students and the design community can study, learn and attend fixed format type workshops by some of the best visiting faculties across the world.
Currently we are conducting immersive workshop sessions for students, the creative and marketing community, and have been invited to present our philosophy and approach across multiple national and international platforms including most recently at ATypI, Typographics and Typo Day.
