SYFY Custom Typography

by Loyalkaspar

To celebrate their 25th anniversary, SYFY recommitted itself to the sci-fi genre and its millions of passionate fans by embracing and celebrating more than just their own original content, but all things genre. We had the privilege of contributing an entirely new visual identity for the network, including a new logo, custom typefaces and tactical innovations that form the backbone of the brand across all linear, digital, social and experiential platforms.

To empower the brand to embrace the entire sci-fi genre, we took an “editorial-first” approach that unifies messaging with visual design, giving the brand a clear voice and perspective that effortlessly lives across all platforms. Typography is central in this cross-platform editorial system, calling for the creation of two custom typefaces, Hero & Sidekick.
