Brenner Sans

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.

Styles

With its unobtrusive details Brenner Sans recalls the rationalised neo-grotesques of the 20th century. It has horizontal terminals of round shapes, low contrast, plain and mechanical structure. Its double-storey ‘g’, and true italics sets it slightly apart and Brenner’s closed counters give it dense, compact appearance in text. Brenner Sans works well from smallest to largest text sizes.

Alternative Diacritics

Brenner Sans includes also simple, hairline diacritics for headline purposes. These unobtrusive accents simply differentiate the letters from the non-accented letters, and work great in words and logos. These alternative accents can be activated by the Stylistic Set 1.

Numerals

All weights of Brenner include nine different kinds of numerals. Old-style proportional figures come as default figures in Brenner. It also, however, includes Lining figures, Tabular numerals (both lining and OsF), Small Caps numerals, superior, inferior, circled and circled inverted numerals (selectable via OpenType features).
