Dina Chaumont Display ExtraLight
Dina Chaumont Text and Display have been designed by bvh type for the new visual identity of the city of Chaumont, France.
Dina Chaumont Display Family is a lowercase-only monospace typeface, fitting into the DIN A ratio. This format is used in portrait and landscape; thus, two different widths coexist. The letters are designed to fill the surface as much as possible in both cases. This feature gives a distinct look and plays with formal variations that convey the city’s dynamism.
Six weights are designed, ranging from ExtraLight to Black, the latter completely eliminating the counterform, transforming the essence of the letters into their most graphical forms. There is a close relationship between the weights: the Light’s stems correspond to the Bold’s counterform thickness, and the same is true of ExtraLight in combination with ExtraBold. A playful set of pictograms extends the glyphset.
