Trusted Associates

Working with trusted associates

Where projects require other specialist craft skills, Chris is able to introduce trusted associates with the agreement of the client. Broadening the offer through collaboration means that the full scope of a project can be properly resourced using known skill sets.

Work direct

Clients can choose to work directly with our recommended associates as well if they wish.

Maintaining craft standards

Working with other allied specialists ensures that craft expectations can be properly fulfilled, especially where custom lettering and animation, for example, is required.

Confidentiality

Epic Icons or its associates will not share their client confidential information with each other, unless by client agreement for the benefit of a commissioned project.

FORMULA SOLUTIONS

Custom font specialists

Founded in 1994, Formula Solutions is a UK-based, leading manufacturer of specialist custom fonts

There are two main fields of activity in custom font production. Firstly, the manufacture of logo fonts, enabling companies to distribute extremely high quality, scalable versions of their brand. Secondly, the creation of corporate custom typefaces that offer an organisation the option to utilise a corporate typeface, custom designed for their specific needs.

Logo fonts

Traditionally, company logos and company-specific symbols have been distributed to users as bitmap graphics. These are not scalable, are often of poor quality, can be easily distorted and can add significant size to file sizes. A TrueType logo font is fully scalable with no distortion. It will render at optimised quality and minimises file sizes, which can reduce document load and print times.

Custom corporate typefaces

Sometimes, an off-the-shelf font just isn't the best solution. More and more corporate businesses are turning to hand-crafted, custom fonts for their corporate typefaces. The benefits are numerous and include a unique company identity, simplified licensing and for a large user base, there can even be cost savings over standard typeface licensing.
