Berlingske Typewriter has converted the essentially elegant and exclusive touch into a style that mimics the look of a typewriter while still living up to the demands of modern use. It is, in contrast to a typical typewriter, not monospaced but proportionally spaced, so that the text appears with identical spacing between letters, thereby maintaining a balanced appearance. It is ideally suited for body text and headlines where it simultaneously expresses a classic and modern style. 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.
