Justworks provides payroll, benefits, HR, and compliance support for US-based businesses, allowing them to grow with confidence. Order developed and type-driven identity system centered around a custom typeface designed in collaboration with Colophon Foundry.

As Justworks customers ourselves, we have seen firsthand their obsession with customer service and support. That simple idea — support — was the starting point for the updated wordmark and visual system.

Order collaborated with Colophon Foundry in London to design “Oately”, a typeface inspired by late 19th century Sans Serifs and named after the Justworks CEO and founder, Isaac Oates. The goal was to create a utilitarian typeface with a personality that could be used exclusively across the organization.
