Background

The family comprises two cuts: the robust Brioni Text and its higher-contrast counterpart Brioni, suitable for longer runs like books and magazines. A bit like another Typotheque face, Greta, Brioni Text performs well in the challenging environment of newsprint with its attendant registration issues. But the same proportion and color, the same generous x-height and modest ascenders and descenders, the same uniformity of stroke that recommend Brioni Text to newspaper printing lend it to another challenging low-res setting: digital display — making it a good choice for both print and web.
