Bluu Upgrade

Welcome to Bluu Next, a big update of the Bluu font originally released in 2013 by Jean-Baptiste Morizot. JB redraw the bold and add a new upright bold-italic to complete it. More condensed, the italic has has the particularity to be darker than its roman counterpart when an italic is usually lighter. Being the only serif font on VTF made for text sizes, this upgrade expands the possiblities of text template with VTF fonts. This upgrade makes even clearer than before the cutting edge temperament of Bluu, with glimps for some middle-age or gothic influences.

Whe heard that a wider family might be in development, but hush! It's a secret!

Grab Bluu Next and use it.
