A spirited and rhythmic handwriting style, ideal for display use and friendly paragraphs.
The Bree Arabic font family is Azza Alameddine’s spry companion to the original Bree design by Veronika Burian and José Scaglione. The Arabic script delivers a spirited look and feel for branding and headline usage, while retaining a welcoming tone in paragraph text.
Since Bree Latin is clearly influenced by handwriting, its Arabic counterpart is based on Ruq’ah, the informal handwriting style used for Arabic. Not only does this complement the other established scripts, it gives text a lively and approachable appearance in paragraphs with fluid shapes and measured flourishes. Bree Arabic combines self-assuredness with joviality, and glyph alternates are available when a slight change in tone is desired. All this adds up to a big personality, so even when set in small text there is no skimming past the words Bree voices.
In 2019, the Bree font family got a huge update. A few shapes were updated or added (the ‘k’ and German capital ‘ß’), two entirely new weights were added (Book and Book Italic), and spacing was perfected. More than that, Vietnamese support was added to Bree Latin, and the Bree Greek and Bree Cyrillic scripts were designed from scratch to parallel the Latin’s tone. Arabic and Thai scripts were added in 2021, along with Pinyin and refined Vietnamese diacritics being added to the Latin, and Devanagari is currently under development. Additionally, Bree was designed in the variable font format for those who want complete control over the font’s appearance while simultaneously saving digital weight in the form of megabytes. This puts Bree in the perfect position for the next digital revolution.
