About Burstwick Font Family

Burstwick is a sans-serif typeface inspired by modern workhorse typefaces and designed for everyday use. It has unique personality but doesn’t suffer in more practical situations, and is very flexible: there are six weights, ranging from thin to bold, and matching oblique italicis.

Lifting elements from grotesque, geometric, and humanist styles, and putting legibility at the forefront, each weight is drawn with higher contrast and subtle asymmetrical features to enhance individuality and aid in readability, particularly at body sizes on websites. These features are intended as an alternative to rigid geometric lines, bringing a natural feeling to glyphs, resulting is a friendly, but professional choice for any organisation or designer.

The foundation of the design is a large X-height, which further aids in differentiating lowercase characters from one another. This allows Burstwuck to feel open, airy, and really shine when used in single-family type hierachies, particulalry in headlines and larger text.

Through its 630 glyphs, Burstwick supports many Latin languages, with thorough kerning for accented character combinations, making it an ideal choice for organisations considering multilingual users, and the perfect addition to any designer’s toolbox.

In addition to accented characters, a large number of special characters and alternatives have been included to increase choice and flexibility. Among these are expand currency symbols, oldstyle figures, math operators, and symbols.

Language support includes: Bosnian, Catalan, Czech, Danish, German, English, Spanish, Estonian, Finnish, French, Irish, Croatian, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Lithuanian, Latvian, Maltese, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, Albanian, Swedish, Turkish.
