Soleil updated

A few years ago Wolfgang Homola released his two-sided Soleil family. One side is a text-and-headline-worthy sans serif. The other side is a mind-bending, two-part display weight named Soleil Magic Caps, which really impresses when it’s set in two colours. Well, that wasn’t good enough for the designer, so we are happy to announce the update you’ve been begging for! A Black and Black Italic weight have been added for even punchier headlines, the character set has been expanded, and OpenType features have been fine-tuned. See it in action on our website’s type tester.

Custom Bree for Siemens Healthineers

Bree family for Siemens Healthineers

The German-based industrial manufacturing company, Siemens, created a new healthcare business with an approachable branding concept in 2016. For this new venture’s voice, they chose Bree for its confident and welcoming tone in headings and subheads, and used it for their logotype to get the feeling just right. Siemens then commissioned us to design the Vietnamese, Cyrillic, and Greek. Siemens Healthineers now has a new brand, pixel-perfect logotype, and eye-catching and inviting large text to speak directly to their B2C and B2B customers. Mash the link to read the article.

German company REWE uses Bree Serif for the branding of their own organic products, lending a cohesive and tactile tenor to the entire packaging line. More in-use samples available on our blog.
