    Birra Saison is used for the identity of wPunkt, a café in Września, Poland.

    With chunky cursive letterforms which are merely hinted at through quickly written outlines, Saison defies classification. It takes up more space than an Extra Black and at the same time has strokes as light as a Hairline. This oscillating nature made it the perfect fit for wPunkt. Designer Jakub Izydorczak realized that Saison’s thin monolinear strokes are ideal for making a neon sign. At the same time, it offered the right amount of oomph. The identity is consequently built around the illuminated sign that bathes the banks of Lake Wrzesińskie in blue light.

    Birra Saison was designed by Viktoriya Grabowska and won her a TDC award. In May 2020, it was released as the third member (Thin Italic) of the Birra flight by Darden Studio. Like all Birra fonts, it’s available free of charge.
