Sometimes I do wonder why a typeface was given a particular name but in the case of “Weston” it’s pretty obvious. The Weston font harks back to the old wild west style of typography with block letters and bold serifs. It’s pretty easy to get that type of cowboy feeling with a type design because its so stereotypical as a style. On the flip side that’s what makes it hard to create a western style typeface that’s actually different and that’s exactly what Weston does so well.

The moment clients realize that revisions are not an all-you-can-eat buffet, suddenly they realize they are not hungry.
I run a brand identity design company and sometimes I find that a start-up will get hypnotised with the idea of branding, putting all the focus on how catchy the name should be and how cool the logo should look. The idea of a brand is aesthetically approached rather then authentically. No thought is given to the brand story or brand tone of voice.
I’m a Brand Design Expert running a small brand studio in Essex and I meet startup brands of all sorts, all the time. What I find is that startup brands or even established business tend to get the wrong idea about branding and quite frankly I don’t blame them because the words brand, branding and brand identity get thrown about all the time as marketing ploys.
