Brioni Sans

Design concept

Brioni Sans is an elegant, humanist sans serif typeface suitable for both body and display text. It has been designed to complement Brioni, a serif typeface, but obviously it works well with other typefaces, or even on its own.

Superior Legibility

Sans serif fonts are not commonly used for running text, but the Brioni Sans family, with its classical proportions, subtle stroke modulation, meticulous spacing, and standard old-style figures, is highly suitable for setting books and magazines.

Different Angles in Italics

A unique feature of Brioni Sans Italics is the use of different slant angles for upper- and lowercase letters. Along with the simplified skeleton of the cursives, Brioni’s two different italic angles give it a lively, vibrant character.

Numerals

All weights of Brioni include nine different kinds of numerals. Default numerals are ranging, or OsF (Old-style proportional Figures) for use in running text. Proportions of text figures are similar to ascenders and descenders of lower case characters. Lining figures for use with capitals letters, because their proportions match the height of caps. Small caps figures to match the height of small capitals. Tabular (both Lining and OsF), Superior and Inferior figures, and finally Circled and Circled inverted are available in our OpenType fonts.

Styles

Brioni Sans comes in four weights, each accompanied by Italics and Small Capitals. While Italics are separate font files, Small Caps can be activated as OpenType feature. Also Italic fonts include Small Caps.
