BEAUSITE

56 styles in 4 subfamilies
Designed by Yassin Baggar
with Anton Koovit, Selina Bernet

Beausite is a typeface system that applies contrast onto a neogrotesque skeleton. The complete family offers four levels of contrast, each with a number of weights and their italic partners.

Beausite Classic revisits the neogrotesque archetype, with geometric touches, for a contemporary design. This latest addition in Beausite features 20 styles and 19 alternate stylistic sets – including reversed and mixed contrast, pushing the concept to its extreme.
Beausite Fit offers a stylish look in text, thanks to a contrast level that remains readable in small sizes.
Beausite Slick works well for intermediary sizes such as small headlines and leads.
Beausite Grand is the starting point of the family. Intended for headlines and large sizes, this is the high contrast and most decorative version of the Beausite family.

All styles come with a full character set for western and eastern european languages, and a number of OpenType features such as stylistic alternates, ligatures, smaller figures for text, tabular figures and fractions.

Beausite started in 2008 as a narrow high contrast typeface. The design evolved over the years and echoes Art Deco typefaces such as Peignot – designed by french graphic artist Cassandre and released in 1937 by Deberny & Peignot. Ultimately, the concept evolved to the idea of applying contrast onto a neogrotesque skeleton. Sans serifs such as Univers established the principle of programmed, consistent typeface families with a wide range of weights and widths. But contrast has rarely been a factor in such programs.
Beausite offers an alternative in the category of neogrotesques, while reliving the Art Deco trend for high contrast Sans in a contemporary fashion.
