Typography: Brandon Text

image For a very long time Brandon Grotesque has been one of my favourite typefaces. I use it way more than I care to admit really. So I was more than pleasantly surprised when I accident discovered that its creators, Hannes von Döhren at HVD Fonts recently published Brandon Text.

It has a higher x-height than the Grotesque version and is optimized for long texts, small sizes and screens. It is manually hinted and optimized for screens, so it will be a good choice for Websites, eBooks or Apps.

No news whether this will be available at Typekit yet, but fingers crossed. Meanwhile it is available over at My Font.
