About Dylan Royal Contact Dylan Royal


Hey, I’m Dylan


I’m a brand and type designer. I build brands, build onto brands and rebuild brands—with a focus on type as a key cornerstone. My holistic and systematic approach to brand development has been informed by my experience in advertising, branding, retail environments and packaging.


Building brands consists of pouring over type specimens, searching for the perfect typeface to represent an organization’s personality and values. Oftentimes a typeface that is held in mind can’t be found—it can only be created. This is the motivation behind Type: Royal an independent type foundry I founded in 2022.


I live, dance and work in Toronto / Muskoka, Ontario. I’m endlessly inspired by the city’s vitality, the stillness of the woods and anything that makes my kid cackle. I love collaborating with people from a diverse range of disciplines to create work that’s strategic and beautiful. Feel free to reach out. I’d love to hear from you.
