Home / Font Catalogue / Abril ™


Conceived by Veronika Burian and José Scaglione specifically for intensive editorial use in newspapers, magazines, and digital media, Abril is a type family of two worlds. The Display styles, based on a contemporary revamp of classic Didone models, have a strong presence on the page without overwhelming the reader with forms that are either unfamiliar or too captivating. Abril Display holds the reader’s attention with measured tension in its curves, good colour, and high contrast. It also features typographic niceties such as ornaments, borders, special dingbats, and alternate letters and numbers that provide a broad palette for the designer’s needs.

To maintain consistency with the Display styles, the styles of Abril Text give the initial impression of having the same shapes but with lower contrast. At first they may look practically identical, but it is these details which smooth the transition from one family to the other as well as distinguish them from each other.

Abril Text takes its inspiration from both 19th century slab serifs and Scotch Roman typefaces, rather than the Didone-style lineage used for Abril Display. This heritage makes the text darker and with less contrast than the display, which is exactly what each needs. The letterforms of Abril Text were engineered from scratch to achieve the right colour, texture, and overall width for comfortable, continuous reading in the most challenging environments. This makes it a great type family for newspapers, pocket books, annual reports, and magazines. In terms of space economy, Abril Text competes head to head with such newspaper classics as Utopia and Nimrod, but features a more contemporary look and feel; and improving upon the classics, Abril Text includes a full set of small caps with numbers and punctuation.

The Abril family consists of 10 text styles and 12 display styles, all of them containing the standard TypeTogether character set that supports over 50 languages, including those from Central and Northern Europe. Abril has dual use in printed and digital environments, so it has consistently been used for top websites and editorials since its introduction. The complete Abril family, along with our entire catalogue, has been optimised for today’s varied screen uses.

Be sure to check out Abril Titling for similar styling and high impact in headlines and cover designs. Or pair Abril with its intended sans counterpart, Tablet Gothic, the pleasing, comprehensive 84-weight family for extensive editorial use.

The full family is available at our webfont service partners TYPEKIT - FONTDECK or contact us for self-hosting @font-face.

A wizard's job is to vex chumps quickly in fog.

Cute, kind, jovial, foxy physique, amazing beauty? Wowser!

Buvez de ce whisky que le patron juge fameux.

Falsches Üben von Xylophonmusik quält jeden größeren Zwerg


Quel fez sghembo copre davanti

Jovencillo emponzoñado de whisky: ¡qué figurota exhibe!

Nechť již hříšné saxofony ďáblů rozzvučí síň úděsnými tóny waltzu, tanga a quickstepu.

Příliš žluťoučký kůň úpěl ďábelské ódy

Voyez le brick géant que j'examine près du wharf

Jove xef, porti whisky amb quinze glaçons d'hidrogen, coi!

Pójdźże, kiń tę chmurność w głąb flaszy!

Doch Bep, flink sexy qua vorm, zwijgt

Kŕdeľ ďatľov učí koňa žrať kôru.

Põdur Zagrebi tšellomängija-följetonist Ciqo külmetas kehvas garaažis

Jó foxim és don Quijote húszwattos lámpánál ülve egy pár bűvös cipőt készít.

Kæmi ný öxi hér, ykist þjófum nú bæði víl og ádrepa.

Luís argüia à Júlia que «brações, fé, chá, óxido, pôr, zângão» eram palavras do português.

D'fhuascail Íosa Úrmhac na hÓighe Beannaithe pór Éava agus Ádhaimh

Vår sære Zulu fra badeøya spilte jo whist og quickstep i min taxi.

Sic fugiens, dux, zelotypos, quam Karus haberis

Gojazni đačić s biciklom drži hmelj i finu vatu u džepu nošnje.

Pijamalı hasta yağız şoföre çabucak güvendi.
