About the typeface
The typefaces Unica have been used throughout the website. Unica has had a conflicted history from the very beginning. Having waited for many years, Haas finally decided to develop a new typeface tailor-made for the technology. They brought in Team 77 to conduct a thorough analysis of four formally related typefaces Akzidenz Grotesk, Neue Haas Grotesk, Helvetica and Univers as a basis for the new design.

Philip have received more than 20 awards, including:
One Show
Beazley Designs of the Year
The Best Dutch Book Design
Cannes Lions
Magpile Magazine Awards
