ABOUT







Gunnlaugur S.E. Briem

Briem is a fantastic Icelandic calligrapher and type designer! Some of his work may be viewed at Adobe, in particular Adobe's multiple master font Briem script. Fonts include BriemGauntlet (1997). He designed BriemTimes in 1990, which was the basis for Times Millenium, used by The Times (read about the controversy at that page). He also made BriemAkademi (1997-2002), BriemGauntlet, BriemMono (2001, typewriter face), BriemOperina and BriemScript.

In 2015, he teamed up with Hasan Abu Afash for the fat calligraphic didone display typeface HS Headline that covers Latin (Briem's contribution) and Arabic (by Afash, based on the simple lines of Naskh calligraphy).
