The visible strokes (or spurs) have been eliminated from the letterforms that would typically feature them. The lack of spurs in Bega is most-clearly visible when you look
at the top-left corners of letters like ‘m’, ‘n’, and ‘r’.
The Bega family includes eight weights, which range from Thin through Black. Each weight has two fonts on offer: An upright font, and an italic. Bega’s italics are obliques; their letterforms are slanted. The strokes of Bega’s letterforms all appear to be monolinear; however that doesn’t mean that Bega is without contrast. Thanks to the family’s large number of weights – eight – you can combine two or more
of them with each other to create headlines that exhibit quite a bit of contrast!
Bega takes its name from the river that rises in the Poiana Ruscă Mountains in Romania.
Each of Bega’s fonts includes a full range of numerators and denominators, to use when typesetting fractions, etc. The font’s numerals are proportional lining figures; these have the same height as Bega’s uppercase letters. The lowercase letters’ ascenders are tall, and they rise up above the tops of the capital letters and numerals. Bega’s friendly look makes it an ideal choice for use in corporate communication design.
