Brandon Roth seems quiet. But when you see his work, you immediately realize there's a lot of volume in there. This stuff is loud. Or smooth. Or edgy—whatever the person who wrote the brief really wanted. Brandon just intuits how to make great work and has done so for clients like New Balance and Lyft, in every medium from hand lettering to 3D.
