Brasil combines the qualities of both a grotesque and a roman. In contrast to Optima, which is a roman without serifs, we have a sans serif with rising stroke ends. It has very expressive curves and the verticals meet the base line with pronounced emphasis. Together these create a more closed line formation while remaining vibrant, something purely grotesque typefaces usually fail to deliver. Originality and progressiveness are the main features of this typeface. It has a large clear image without a hint of playfulness; it is elegant but not bloodless, sharp but not cold.
