Design Notes

Brisbane is an economically proportioned humanist sans serif designed for use in branding, wayfinding, and text settings. The family of ten styles offers a range of weights from light to bold with accompanying Italics. Also available as a variable font for adjusting weight grades with fine precision. OpenType Features provide useful alternates for enhancing character recognition at a distance, and a selection of orientation and location devices. You can see Brisbane in use as the main font choice on our website.

The design of Brisbane was inspired by the capital city of Queensland, Australia. Over the last decade the city has been transformed from a large country town to a contemporary metropolis, and is now positioned to share its talent and beauty with an international audience at the Olympic Games of 2032.

Brisbane was designed by Troy Leinster © 2012.
