In the world of journalism, headlines are the lifeblood of a publication. They need to be compact, sturdy, and project a voice that exudes trust and neutrality. Enter Built, the font family designed specifically for creating striking headlines that grab the reader’s attention.
With its wraparound curves and subtle curls, Built evokes a feel of a bygone newspaper era without being too old-fashioned. The font family is available in five weights, ranging from Extra-Light to Bold, each with its own unique character and style.
But what sets Built apart from other fonts is its ability to scale up without sacrificing readability. Lighter typefaces may look great on paper, but on-screen, they can quickly become unreadable if not properly designed. With Built, however, the font becomes narrower as it becomes lighter, allowing designers to set oversized page titles without worrying about copyfitting.
In addition to its unique scaling capabilities, Built also offers a simple solution to the problem of aligning numbers in headlines. By disabling kerning, Built ensures that all numerals, monetary symbols, and most math symbols will line up perfectly, saving designers time and frustration.
Built also includes a range of other typographical features, such as fractions, primes, ordinals, and vertically compact accents. And as the font becomes lighter, the asterisk grows more legs, allowing it to appear tonally even in Extra-Light.
So whether you’re designing a front page for a major newspaper or simply need to create eye-catching headlines for your blog, Built is the font family that can deliver the perfect balance of style and readability. With its range of weights and styles, it’s the perfect choice for any journalist or designer looking to make a bold statement on-screen.
