  • Typographic Type Specimen for RISO Printing

Created Circa 2010 by Hannes von Döhren

For this project, we needed to create type specimens for a typeface that was assigned. These type specimens were to feature the typeface in an interesting and dynamic way and needed to only use two colors (for RISO printing). The font I was assigned is called Brandon Grotesque by Hannes von Döhren. I chose to focus on displaying this typeface at a large size since Brandon Grotesque’s small x-height creates readability problems at smaller sizes.

This was a complementary font that I used in the type specimen.
Brandon Grotesque comes in a variety of weights and options.
A focus on the displaying the typeface here.
