In a landmark year marking the 200th anniversary of the first sans-serif typeface, we find ourselves at the intersection of tradition and innovation. What better way to honor this significant milestone than by introducing our very own creation – Brother 1816, a sans-serif typeface that pays homage to its historical roots while embracing the demands of contemporary design.
Brother 1816 stands as a testament to versatility, embodying flexibility, multifaceted design, and solid typographic foundations. This typeface seamlessly blends geometric shapes with humanistic strokes, offering a design spectrum where you can choose between a pure geometric or humanistic style. What sets Brother 1816 apart is its adaptability, allowing you to mix over 20 alternate characters and create a unique typographic feel tailored to your project’s requirements.
The humanistic nature of Brother 1816 makes it a champion of readability, ensuring legibility even in small sizes. This attribute positions it as an ideal choice for branding, editorial work, and signage where clarity is paramount. On the other hand, its geometric essence empowers it to command attention in larger applications such as branding, headlines, posters, and beyond, injecting personality into every character.
In celebration of this remarkable typeface, Brother 1816 is not just a singular font but a comprehensive toolkit. With a total of 32 fonts, divided into two groups – normal (16 weights) and printed (16 weights) – this typeface offers a wealth of options for designers to explore. Each weight comprises over 460 characters, providing an extensive set of tools that include +20 alternates, angular and straight edges, swashes, fractions, ordinals, and much more.
Brother 1816 is not just confined to traditional print mediums; it has been meticulously designed for the digital age. Specially crafted for web use, the typeface incorporates hinting instructions, ensuring optimal performance in various screen resolutions. This attention to detail underscores its adaptability, making it a seamless choice for both small and large sizes across a myriad of digital platforms.
