Part startup factory and part venture capital firm, Betaworks wanted to root its new identity in tech history. With Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine as inspiration, we developed a custom typeface constructed of graphic elements from a diagram of the historic computer. Utilizing elements of this new typeface, we constructed a provocative logo that has sparked a lot of discussion.
