Berlingske Sans Round has an organic and soft look without loosing the coolness of the Sans and the humanist reference of the style. All the terminals, overshoots, and finials are rounded without any sharp corners, and the curved finish creates a warm look making the font very complaisant and sympathetic. It is highly usable for both body text and headlines where there is a need for a smooth and gentle expression. The typeface Berlingske, originally designed by Playtype in 2010 for the Danish daily Berlingske – Denmark’s oldest newspaper, dates back 265 years. The design is carefully balanced to deliver significant modernization while paying homage to a unique heritage. After four years of further development with extended styles, language and weights, Berlingske today represents a wide ranged family that delivers freedom to play around and give any section or subject area a specific tonality without sacrificing consistency. The resulting font family, Berlingske, comes in more 229 weights and contains almost half a million different glyphs. Berlingske is eminently readable and strikingly easy to navigate in while rich in identity and immediately recognizable. It is a distinct newspaper typography, where the difference in height between capitals and minuscule has to be significant in order for the text to be immediately decodable. The typeface embraces a wide range of section and subject area from news, fashion, art, politics, economic, society, culture, sport, lifestyle, spanning from newscasting, captures, headlines to lifestyle reporting.
