It is a zero bullshit type family available in five weights across regular, condensed, and oblique sub-families. Its blatant brick-like construction is honest, coarse, and unapologetic. The family features characteristic hard angles, chunky corners, and exaggerated ink traps that give it its distinct edge. These hardened features are met with subtle curves and strokes that add contrast and finesse to its purposefully rigid foundation.
Revisited throughout 2020, Brik is now whipped into prime fighting shape. The fat has been trimmed, sporting expanded glyph support, completely new kerning, and reconstructed letters. Brik looks great huge, but now works even better at scale. Especially with larger bodies of text.
Brik is sold cheap as individual slices, or can be bundled together in full variable glory. The type family is crafted with love and a New Yawk attitude by BurnType in 2020/21.
In keeping with the name of the font, a limited edition of 69 bricks with hand-pressed “BRIK” font in 185 pt Brik XL is available for purchase. If the brick is too heavy, A1 specimen posters are also for sale.
