HOW WE GOT HERE

Martin Hunt established typeface in 1997. His founding philosophy was based on three core principles: to create quality design for clients; to establish partnerships based on trust, respect and integrity; and to create solutions that drive businesses forward. It’s a philosophy that we maintain today. 

We are on the New Zealand All-of-Government (AoG) procurement panel for Graphic Design.
