Brono Typeface by Val Toch | Incredible Types

Brono Typeface

Brono is a typeface designed by Val Toch, a graphic designer, illustrator and typographer based in London. The typeface is the result of an investigative exercise concerning the way type is perceived on screen. Because light travels from behind type when viewed in this environment, it distorts the actual and perceived shape of the letterforms, requiring additional optical corrections. Brono utilises traditional ink traps as ‘light traps’ to counteract this issue, while its proportions and stroke contrast have also been designed to increase its on-screen legibility.

Brono is yet to be released, but you can register your interest here and I recommend checking out Beiber, a geometric sans-serif also designed by Val Toch, which is an extension of Brono.
