Brandon Grotesque by HVD Fonts

Today's gorgeous design comes courtesy of Berlin-based type foundry HVD Fonts (opens in new tab). Founded by Hannes von Döhren in 2005, the company produce high quality typefaces, Brandon Grotesque being a prime example.

Designed by Döhren, Brandon Grotesque is a sans serif type family of six weight plus matching italics. The team comment on the font on Behance: "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.

"Brandon Grotesque has a functional look with a warm touch. While the thin and the black weights are great performers in display sizes the light, regular and medium weights are well suited to longer texts. The small x-height and the restrained forms lend it a distinctive elegance."

Brandon Grotesque is available to purchase from (opens in new tab).
