Berlingske Serif Text has a very solid and robust style that gives it a more heavy look without compromising the fundamental elegance of the Berlingske style. The contrast of the hairlines has been enhanced, making it very suitable for smaller-sized text. It is a special design for body text or other longer texts that must retain a high degree of legibility. With its exquisite and consistent design, it displays the very essence of the Berlingske type. 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 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 news casting, captures, headlines to life style reporting.
