Brubeck thrives on a generation of dense, loud typefaces that graced numerous cultural media, not just in the 1960s. It is particularly suited to large-scale applications, adding power to any layout without being too decorative. The rather narrow-running typeface features today's standard glyph set, extending the approach of the time to a headline-only lettering. Backed by an essential coolness, Brubeck seeks to bring the past into the present, proving that good taste never fades. The font comes tightly spaced with few alternate letters to play with.
