Fonts from 2013: Doctrine Sans

Fonts from 2013: Doctrine Sans

Veer's Creative Team takes time out to dish on the fonts that made their year.

Mike's pick from 2013: Doctrine Sans by Jonathan Abbott, Jonathan Barnbrook and Julián Moncada for Virus Type - (June 2013)

A contemporary sans-serif typeface with an agreeable character, Doctrine Sans is the moderate comrade of the display typeface Doctrine Stencil. From the obscure starting point of the North Korean national airline livery, Doctrine has grown to encompass a series of more mature typographic influences. By blending elements of twentieth-century neo-grotesque, humanist and geometric styles, Doctrine is at once universal and idiosyncratic. Doctrine is informed mid-twentieth-century modernism, yet is more human and less clinical than many modernist faces. The rounded, lighter weights speak with graceful composure whilst the large x-height, low contrast and squarer, heavier weights give Doctrine an affable charm and a persuasive voice.

Including a vast array of ligatures and alternate characters in five weights ranging from thin to black, Doctrine is capable of handling a multitude of testing typographical situations.
