information

about BLine

The BLine has been created to complement the earlier finished BDot. It took the skeleton and connected the points as closely as possible. It was necessary to first create the BDot typeface, more prescriptive in essence. The first broader use was in our visual identity for the BULAC (Bibliothèque universitaire des langues et civilisations) in Paris. The family includes further styles like the BLine Mono and the BLine Sans, a customized version that we adapted for the new sign system of Les Halles district in the heart of Paris. Its very large x-height is not only interesting for sign systems, but it also allows small and economic text use while remaining comfortable to read in print as on the screen.

OpenType features include various Stylistic Sets: ss01 Negative Circled Capitals and Numbers, ss02 Circled Capitals and Numbers, ss03 Negative Framed Capitals and Numbers, ss04 Framed Capitals and Numbers, ss05 Alternate a, ss06 Alternate i l (i Italic only).
