Berlingske Sans has a very clear and open expression with a cool touch referencing the Berlingske serif proportions like for e.g the humanist style. This design is drawn very open, especially prominent in the letters a, c and s, which showcase the dynamic and light expression of the Sans. The legibility is excellent, irrespective of it is use for body text or headlines. 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 develop 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 recognisable. It is a distinctly 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 news casting, captures, headlines to life style reporting.
