FOUNDRY: Bold Monday
Brando is a contemporary serif with humanist proportions, exploring the balance between mechanical and Egyptian forms. The careful interaction of rigid and fluid strokes gives Brando its modern appeal and sturdiness. The light styles of Brando assume the shape of an elegant slab-serif with open letterforms, while the heavier weights feature just the right amount of contrast to give it an even and comfortable texture in text. The distinctive italics strike a harmonious balance between true italics and oblique, with letterforms that are supple and vigorous alike.
