Sahlia is a custom font for Brandmark

A custom font for Brandmark, a web app that creates a logo and design assets for your business.

The owner of Brandmark approached me to design a custom font with features specifically intended for branding. Visually, they were looking for a stencil typeface that felt luxurious and elegant.
