An elegant typeface suitable for setting books and magazines. Brioni developed spontaneously from practice with a broad-nib pen, but the result is a hybrid of calligraphic influences and subtle manipulation of the stroke terminals.
Brioni was designed by Nikola Djurek in 2008. In 2010 Nikola received the Icograda Excellence Award for his typefaces Brioni, Plan Grotesque and Marlene. In 2013, Alexander Tarbeev designed the Cyrillic version, and Peter Bilak designed the Greek version.
