Styrene A
Medium Italic
Styrene, a new sans serif by Berton Hasebe, is his exploration of proportion and simplicity in type design. The initial inspiration for the family was a charmingly awkward sans serif called Breede Schreeflooze shown in an early 20th century type specimen published by the Enschedé Typefoundry in the Netherlands. However, Styrene has an ahistorical attitude. Its name was inspired by the purposefully synthetic feeling to its curves and geometry. Styrene is characterized by its proportions: typically narrow characters like _f j r_ and _t_ are hyperextended and flattened, adding openness in unexpected places. Styrene’s two widths offer different textures in text: version A is dogmatically geometric, with a stronger overall personality, while version B is narrower for more reasonable copyfit, though not truly condensed.

Prince John held his high festival in the Castle of Ashby. This was not the same building of which the stately ruins still interest the traveller, and which was erected at a later period by the Lord Hastings, High Chamberlain of England, one of the first victims of the tyranny of Richard the Third, and yet better known as one of Shakspeare’s characters than by his historical fame. The castle and town of Ashby, at this time, belonged to Roger de Quincy.Prince John held his high festival in the Castle of Ashby.
