SuperBlue is a casual, cheerful sans serif family designed by Seán Donohoe, a Danish type designer and sign painter. Seán crafted the first version of the family during his time in the TypeMedia master’s program in type design at the Royal School of Art (KABK) in The Hague. While making initial sketches, he took advantage of his sign-painting skills, using two flat brushes to define SuperBlue’s basic forms.
Despite its spontaneous appearance, SuperBlue does not break with the canon of traditional letterforms. Designers can readily use it to set text on paper and screens without encountering any legibility issues. Moreover, the incised appearance of its stems give words set in capital letters or small caps a remarkable elegance.
SuperBlue consists of a suite of feature-rich OpenType fonts fully equipped to tackle complex, professional typesetting. Its extensive character set includes small caps, fractions, case-sensitive forms, and six sets of numerals. In addition to standard Latin, it supports Central European, Baltic, and Turkic languages.
This affable family’s lettershapes make it especially well suited to relaxed and friendly designs for video games and apps, children’s books, clothing, toys, food packaging, greeting cards, and theme park identities.
