Brenner

Design Concept

Brenner combines seemingly unrelated styles into one large superfamily. Its unobtrusive Sans, confident Serif, expressive Display, utilitarian Mono, sharply chiselled Slab, and extravagant Script, along with space-saving Condensed Sans styles, all share vertical metrics, and can be easily combined. The styles differ from each other because each is built around a different model, yet as distinctive as they are, they support each other surprisingly well in complex layouts. As individualistic as its members are, however, this is a remarkably harmonious family that works well together.

Weights

Brenner (Serif) is a contemporary interpretation of the Southern European high-contrast typefaces produced by Bodoni and Didot (with a nod to Aldo Novarese). Unlike the Moderns of the past centuries, Brenner injects the rhythm of handwritten pointed pen writing, resulting in an easy-going typeface that works best from 14 points higher. It is available in four weights ranging from Light to Bold.
