Samsung has now made the SamsungOne official and joins the list of companies with their own unique font, with that step. In case you are wondering what some of those companies are, how about Google and Apple for example? The SamsungOne typeface has been designed to cover an astonishing 400 languages, 26 writing systems and more than 25K glyphs. Now that's what we call a global company!
As the name suggests, SamsungOne is designed to create a visual sense of universal unity, irrespective of the language on which it is applied. Keep in mind that SamsungOne is designed to not only be featured in smartphones, but across all the products that they manufacture and sell, including television sets, microwave ovens, refrigerators and the like. The five typographical principles which they followed while developing the typeface in collaboration with Brody Associates are Humanist, Distinctive, Expert, Universal and Legible.
Although we are not sure when we will see Samsung start using SamsungOne, take a look at the images for a preview. We also have a small video for you from Samsung Newsroom to explain the story behind the concept.
