BHV Styles

About BHV

The BHV family is a rather unconventional coalition, containing various weights of a monolinear grotesque and a corresponding serif in text and display styles. They all share a common grid-based skeleton resulting in some odd letter shapes with emphasized links.

While the serif styles follow a more traditional approach and try to fulfill at least some legibility conventions, the grotesque almost always creates pattern-like lines. Because of the unfixed x-height, texts set in lowercase and uppercase differ drastically in terms of texture.

BHV will always stick out cause of its oddities; use it big and in certain spots where you want to have the focus on. Take advantage of the ligatures and alternates for maximum stylistic effect. Combine it with a neutral typeface to highlight single letters or words in identities and layouts. Or just go crazy and use it like a pattern!
