    Damien Text is used for all body copy on NZZ Bellevue. The online magazine was developed by Edenspiekermann as

    “a new platform for NZZ (Neue Zürcher Zeitung), bringing together three print-only publications (Z, NZZ am Sonntag, and Stil) to become Switzerland’s premier lifestyle guide, … offering inspirational and informative content across fashion, food, design and more.”

    Damien by Revolver Type Foundry was designed specifically for editorial typography. It combines contemporary character with untroubled on-screen readability and is hence the perfect choice for the project. Damien is complemented by Beausite. The high-contrast sans serif by Fatype is used in all its three optical sizes—Grand, Slick, and Fit—for headlines, teasers, captions and navigational items.

    Damien Text comes with small caps, fractions and different sets of numerals. This number-heavy feature about Swiss watches shows the default old style figures.
