Tzegoh is a minimalist clothing line by Singaporean designer Tze Goh. The website, launched earlier this month, is also as minimal as it gets. Each page is merely a paragraph of text and spare, ghostly photography. It's in this stark landscape that a typeface has the power to set the tone of a brand. For the identity and website, Thomas Manss & Company chose Johanna Biľak'sJigsaw, one of Typotheque's lesser-known faces that has been around since 1999 but feels as if it was released yesterday. Contemporary, austere, almost geometric but not mechanically so — it's the perfect match for Tzegoh's design.
Jigsaw is used as part of images on the homepage and Opinions pages, but the designers neglected to take advantage of Typotheque's reasonably priced and easy to use webfont service for other pages, instead opting for a system font,Trebuchet MS. It looks ok, but why not go all the way?
This site was recommended by complete archive to be launched later this year.
