Vestmar Font Family
Sindre Bremnes’ Vestmar displays a subtility of craft rarely found among his peers. Carefully mediating black and white, curves and straights, he navigates the grey areas yet uncharted by established type design principles. Vestmar lends its stability from the constructed rational letterforms of modernist age. Still, the generous openings and horizontal terminals infuse an unexpected organic dynamism. The bulbous shapes inflate like a balloon enclosed in a container, swelling inwards against obstacles. This peculiar feature creates thick lines where thin are expected, asymmetry where symmetry is expected – and vice versa. Yet, where Vestmar diverges from the norm, it does so with care and caution. Bremnes never resorts to shouting – he simply delivers his typographic textures in a calm and consistent manner.
