We began working with Braintree pre-acquisition in July of 2013. We worked with the team to reimagine the brand from the ground up—authoring the brand’s mission statement, developing a completely new identity, launching a new global campaign, helping to build out the SF office space, collaborating with the engineering teams, and so much more.
Unknown to many in those days, Braintree was the company behind the code that made mobile payments so simple and magical. They processed the first dollars of Uber and airbnb, but were losing out on more opportunities simply because they were based in Chicago and weren't considered part of the “Silicon Valley Club.”
B_mono is a typeface designed by Martin Grasser, Angy Che, Frank Lionetti, and Josh Finklea in 2014 for Braintree, in collaboration with a group of developers at Venmo, Braintree, and PayPal.
A monospace typeface, inspired by Courier and Stymie, meant to celebrate the code used to build Braintree’s products and be a friendly distinctive typeface for corporate communications.
