Introducing Bearings: a print typeface designed for the web and a web face designed for print.
Bearings is made for newspapers, and more specifically, street newspapers.
When you buy a street paper, you help someone help themselves. For that person, their street paper is a way to get their life together. It’s a way to be seen and to be heard. It’s a way to find their bearings. Bearings is a typeface that connects your world to theirs. It’s genuine, real, and dignified, yet not intrusive. Bearings is more accessible than traditional newspaper typography and is more translatable into new media: a print typeface designed for the web and a web face designed for print.
Bearings tells the story of the vendor. It’s a typeface that keeps their roots strong, yet shows how they’ve grown to become a self-employed and self-helping part of society. Bearings comes in four weights (light, regular, semi-bold, and bold), as well as italics. Each of the 557 characters has been painstakingly crafted to read well in print and on screen, at any size and on any device.
