Brandon Grot2 Ds
Explore the original Brandon Grotesque font family. Background story, font testing & licensing options.

Brandon Grotesque is influenced by the geometric-style sans serif faces that were popular during the 1920s and 30s, the fonts are based on geometric forms that have been optically corrected for better legibility. The small x-height and the restrained forms lend it a distinctive elegance. The Brandon Grotesque weights are great performers in display sizes. For longer texts and small sizes we created the perfectly fitting Brandon Text Family.

What makes Brandon Grotesque so special? Some thoughts and details behind the design process.
Brandon Grotesque
It all began with…

My father gave me some magazines from the 1920s and 1930s, which he had found at my grandfather’s; he thought I should have a look at the hand-lettered advertisements. I was fascinated by the surface feel and by the general atmosphere of these magazines; the way the body type was set and the various combinations of typefaces and hand-lettered headlines.

I absolutely wanted to create a typeface with that kind of feel. A geometric face that nonetheless would possess a certain softness and warmth. Because of “bad” printing, the text faces in those magazines had slightly rounded corners, lending them an emotionality that today’s clean-cut type lacks. So I decided to give Brandon slightly rounded-off corners to allow it to radiate warmth in spite of its geometric clarity.

Although Brandon with its 12 styles is a relatively large family, each weight has its own aesthetic, for while the weights are based on each other they were all drawn separately in order to give each variety its own details — like the various ‘g’ variations or the perfectly round counters in the Black weight. A real italic was designed to provide additional individuality and to distinguish the font from most other geometric sans faces, making it even more ‘human’.

Let’s take a detailed look into the secrets of Brandon.

In addition to Brandon Grotesque we created Brandon Text — optimized for small sizes.
Brandon Family
A specialist for every field

Brandon Grotesque and Brandon Text can be used together to solve all typographic challenges. While Brandon Grotesque can be used to give character to the brand, Brandon Text is with its higher x-heigt the perfect choice for longer text blocks in reading sizes. → Check out Brandon Text.


OpenType Features – or what else you can do with it, besides designing your next logo.

A font of today’s needs has to include more than just the alphabet and some punctuation. Besides a big number of accented letters, making sure that the typeface has a good language support, a font should include several features for excellent typographic work joining forces with the layout applications of the time and of course the user. Here is a selection of what this font family has to offer under the hood.

Offline

Ligatures

If two letters have the nature to collide when used in combination a ligature is needed to solve this unwanted event. Ligatures are especially designed solutions for such letter combinations. This font contains a set of ligatures which are automatically substituted as soon as these letter combinations are typed in.

Avalanche Attacks

Alternates

Besides the standard letters a font sometimes contains several versions of a letter called alternates. You can exchange the alternate with the standard letter by selecting it through the Opentype feature panel and every letter of the stylistic set will be exchanged. Often this results in a totally different optical appearance of the typeface.

Fractions

If fractions are needed anywhere an OpenType code makes sure that if you type any numbers combined with a slash between a fraction will automatically be substituted.

90.056,36

12.011,89

Tabular Figures

Beside the normal lining figures, the fonts also contain a set of tabular figures. This means that all numbers have the same width, which is useful for setting up invoices, tables or every other task where the figures should have a structured appearance among themselves.

C2H5OH

Subscript

A subscript is a character that is set slightly below the normal line of type. They are used in formulas, mathematical expressions, and specifications of chemical compounds and isotopes, but can have many other uses as well. These characters are not simply ordinary characters reduced in size – to keep them visually consistent with the rest of the font, they are slightly heavier than a reduced-size character would be.

Say Hello!2

Superscript

A superscript is a character that is set slightly above the line of type. It has the same weight and size like a subscript character. They are also used in formulas, mathematical expressions and text references, but can have many other uses as well.

Language Support

Brandon Grotesque has an extended character set that supports more than a hundred languages. Part of the language coverage is the support for Latin, Greek and Cyrillic script.
