Bridone – The Symbiosis Between British and Didone Typeface Design.
The name Bridone is composed of British and Didone. Josep Patau Bellart designed the Bridone font family in 2013 (Font Publisher: Tipo Pèpel). It’s a skillful blend of a British slab font from the late Victorian period and the typical shape of a Didone font. The typeface is characterized by highly contrasted strokes as we know from Bodoni or Didot’s neoclassical types. Bridone provides a wide variety of weights and italic versions. Besides the basic Bridone version and Bridone Titling, the font family also includes different ornaments to support a more traditional look. Plenty of OpenType features such as Small Caps, Fractions, Ligatures and Discretionary Ligatures, as well as Initial Forms expand the typographic leeway.
