We have a great new foundry at YouWorkForThem, they go by the name of Kostic Type Foundry. They have already posted a few great new designs to our site, but one that we would like to highlight today is the exquisite Breakers font.
Breakers is a sans serif originally conceived to be a display typeface. It is easy to achieve high contrast using Breakers thin weight against the ultra weight. With small caps included, and over 600 glyphs in each weight, Breakers should prove itself useful in finding the right combination for any typographic setting.
Breakers has a character set to support Western and Central European languages, and an extended set for monetary symbols. Each weight includes small caps, ligatures, proportional lining and old-style numbers, tabular figures, fractions and scientific superior/inferior figures.
Breakers font has licensing options available for Desktop, WebFont, ePub, and Mobile App.
Foundry: Kostic Type Foundry is located in Belgrade, Serbia. It is a small private foundry, run in cooperation between Zoran and Nikola Kostia (father and son). Zoran began making fonts in 1987 out of necessity, since his DTP studio needed PostScript Cyrillic fonts which, at the time, were being made by no one. While designing his first font, he discovered a whole new world whose beauty and complexity wove such a spell over him that he’s under its hold to this very day. He made a number of Cyrillic fonts as a counterpart to the existing Latin fonts, as well as original fonts like: Batke, Beograd, KosticSans, KosticSerif, Lapidary Capitals, Sketch, DesignerRound, Why Square and Just Square and about ten others, designed on the basis of Old Church Slavonic scripts (Hilandarski Ustav and Monah with 6,400 characters each). Nikola grew up playing and learning in his father’s DTP studio, where he was surrounded by the amazing world of graphic design from the late 80’s and early 90’s, a period when technological breakthroughs opened up new possibilities for everyone in the business. Naturally, he became a graphic designer. Although he’s been working (designing logotypes, packaging, etc.) for over 10 years, and in that period he worked in couple of firms and ran his own studio, only in his thirties did he find in himself the discipline needed for making fonts. In 2010 they decided to join forces and dedicate their work to type design.
