Brenner Display

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.

Contrast of Thick and Thin

Brenner Display has extreme contrast between the thick and thin lines, so most of the punctuation is drawn as simple monolinear lines to create balanced type compositions.

Styles

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 30 points higher. It is available in two styles, Black and Black Stencil.
