Font: Brim Narrow

Brim Narrow is a decorative, layered typeface. Perfect for posters, packaging and logotypes.

Brim Narrow is inspired by antique woodtype and chromatic type from the 1800s. Choose the look you want by combining some of its eight layer styles. Each layer is then assigned its own colour, resulting in a rich assortment of eye-catching results.
 
Warm and tactile, Brim produces punchy headlines and decorative titles. Perfect for posters, packaging and logotypes.
 
The typeface began as a handful of letters created for a logotype. It became clear that it would make an excellent display typeface, so it was expanded to include all uppercase letters, numbers, European accents and more. 
 
Brim is available to use via Adobe Typekit and to buy on MyFonts.

The name Brim accurately describes the expanded outer edge designed to produce its distinctive outlines. This overlapping structure couldn’t function correctly in wood or metal type; however for digital typography this system produces a more efficient solution for colour type, both in design and smaller file size, important for web typography. 
 
The tight-fitting extruded styles are designed to overlap, creating a solid platform for the letters to jump out from. Steeper than the traditional 45°, they emphasise the narrow design, enabling more words per line.
Many thanks to Dave Foster, Toshi Omagari, & Terrance Weinzierl, who generously gave their time to guide the design of this typeface. Download the full specification with more examples here.
