Benton Sans, already the largest Font Bureau family, now boasts a full spectrum of widths from Extra Compressed to the new Benton Sans Wide. This makes a total of 80 styles — the 5 widths, each with 8 weights and corresponding italics. And that will make designers with complex typographic needs very happy. Combine this group with Benton Sans RE for small screen use, or pair it with Benton Modern as a serif companion, and there isn’t a typographic task too large, too small, or too complex that the comprehensive expanded family can’t handle.More ...

As our tech gent once commented, this is the time of year when we hear from brides and the mothers of brides. That is to say, it’s wedding season and all of a sudden, script typefaces are just as important as the cake.
Sometimes, it helps having a friend who’s a type designer lend a hand, or in this case, a face. Dyana Weissman’s script-in-progress graces the invitations of her friends’ wedding.
The inspiration for Dyana’s typeface started with letters ...More ...

For more than a decade, the Readability Series of typefaces has been part of Font Bureau’s commitment to the needs of our clients and a response to emerging trends and print technologies. Now, with another wave of technological change and evolving trends, not just in print media, but also online typography and mobile web use, it makes sense for the typefaces of the Readability Series to migrate to our Retail Library for the same licensing options and affordable price.

You may be wondering, ‘why Neue Haas Grotesk when we have Helvetica?’ To offer the best reason, and the one that’s the most interesting, we have to go back quite a few decades, to Switzerland.
