Brim is inspired by antique woodtype and chromatic type from the 1800s. Its various styles are designed to stack on top of each other, in different colors, to create an infinite assortment of eye-catching results.
The font began as a handful of letters created for a logotype. However it quickly became clear that it would make an excellent display typeface, so it was expanded to include all uppercase letters, numbers, European accents and more. Warm and tactile, Brim produces punchy headlines and decorative titles. Perfect for posters, packaging and logotypes.
The name Brim accurately describes the expanded outer edge designed to produce its distinctive outlines. This overlapping structure couldn’t function correctly in wood or metal type; however for digital typography this system produces a more efficient solution for colour type, both in design and smaller file size, important for web typography.
Many thanks to Dave Foster, Toshi Omagari, & Terrance Weinzierl, who generously gave their time to guide the design of this typeface.
