Bree

Bree is a spry sans serif that delivers a spirited look and feel for branding and headline usage. As an upright italic, Bree shows a pleasant mix of rather unobtrusive capitals with more vivid lowercase letters, giving text a lively appearance. Bree is clearly influenced by handwriting, has a touch of cheekiness, a wide stance for each character, and an extra-large x-height, which equals a big personality.

How do you cook Super Noodles? What are the rules for mice racing? Can I exercise my kestrel at the tip? These head scratchers have been voted the top three wackiest questions put to council staff last year. Also in the Top 10 was a lady who wanted help with her crossword and a baker who needed to know the tin size for a Mary Berry tart. Another caller asked what time a council website shut. The LGA Peter Fleming said: “Staff will always try their hardest to assist”.

Even Mary looks baffled as to why someone would call their council about baking tins. The hilarious queries are revealed by the Local Government Association which has compiled a list of the 10 wackiest demands from residents to 370 councils in the last 12 months. Sifting throught he mountain of 50 million calls to local government offices in England and Wales, the LGA said they were often the first port of call for townsfolk.

The Backstory

Bree

Clearly influenced by handwriting, Bree is a multi-award winning spirited and rhythmic upright italic.

Bree is a spry sans serif by Veronika Burian and José Scaglione that delivers a spirited look and feel for branding and headline usage. As an upright italic, Bree shows a pleasant mix of rather unobtrusive capitals with more vivid lowercase letters, giving text a lively appearance.

Bree is clearly influenced by handwriting. As such, some of its most characteristic features are the single-story ‘a’, the cursive ‘e’, the outstroke curves of ‘v’ and ‘w’, the flourished ‘Q’, and the fluid shapes of ‘g’, ‘y’, and ‘z’. Alternates of these letters are available when a more neutral look is desired.
Bree has a touch of cheekiness, a wide stance for each character, and an extra-large x-height. All this adds up to a big personality, so even when set in small text there is no skimming past the words Bree voices.

The complete Bree family, along with our entire catalogue, has been optimised for today’s varied screen uses. Bree has been chosen for such wide-ranging uses as Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the US, the branding for the country of Peru, and numerous layouts including mobile apps, magazines, newspapers, and books.
