About

Druk Text Wide is designed to be useful for structural elements, clarifying typographic hierarchy without forcing dramatic changes in scale on the page. The Super weight was developed for the “Etc” section in Bloomberg Businessweek, where it maintains the distinct personality of the display type even in captions and infographics. It can also be used sparingly for short blocks of text, but it is primarily intended for display use at small sizes, maintaining its legibility all the way down to 6pt. Like its related display face, Druk Text Wide has four weights, from Medium to Super, with italics.
