(new) Bw James
Designed by Moritz Kleinsorge, Bw James is a friendly and playful sans serif: The angled stems, branching spurs and ball terminals all contribute to a personable and friendly mood, while the mono-linear body makes the typeface appear fresh and modern.
Bw James is a multi-purpose font family boasting eight weights, ranging from Thin to Black with accompanying true italics. This flexibility offers a wide range of design possibilities both for print and on screen.
With more than 900 characters per style, Bw James comes equipped with plenty of OpenType features like small caps, ligatures, old-style and lining figures (proportional and tabular), fractions and case-sensitive forms.
Moritz started working on Bw James during his university studies back in 2015. The typeface was further developed under the guidance of Pilar Cano from Letterjuice, as part of the Alphabettes mentorship program, then published by Branding with Type.
