A flexible and personable world-ready typeface, providing true multilingual font support for Georgian and Latin
The original Adelle Sans, José Scaglione and Veronika Burian’s award-winning sans serif, provides a clean and spirited take on the traditional grotesque sans. The Georgian design was created by Jan Charvát and Akaki Radmadze in the same spirit of the full Adelle Sans family.
As is typical with TypeTogether typefaces, the most demanding editorial design problems were taken into consideration when creating Adelle Sans Georgian. The combination of lively character and unobtrusive appearance inherent to grotesque sans serifs make it an utterly versatile tool for every imaginable situation. Whether for branding, signage, editorial, or advertising, the keyword behind Adelle Sans Georgian’s use is flexibility.
Adelle Sans Georgian is available in 14 styles that capitalise on legibility and provide the designer a wide range of text emphasis within their layout. By creating weights from Thin to Heavy, the Georgian is a perfect counterpart to the Latin in tone, vertical proportions, and functionality. This ensures an harmonious fit between both type families in the same block of text and a pleasing change of texture when used at similar point sizes.
Rooted in the belief that broad language support is crucial to modern type design, Adelle Sans Georgian is yet another push in TypeTogether’s ongoing multilingual efforts. Adding language support is not a simple act of matching geometry stroke for stroke; each script must harmonise with the others while still maintaining its own identity. Georgian script is inherently more organic than Latin, with individual letters that emphasise curves and flowing strokes. Adelle Sans Georgian is therefore softer than its Latin counterpart. The Adelle family’s naturally clean and spirited shapes lend themselves to an agile Georgian translation of the colour and feel of the Latin, matching the overall functionality, purpose, and cultural awareness.
Across the entire multilingual family — Arabic, Armenian, Chinese, Cyrillic, Devanagari, Greek, Hebrew, Lao, Latin, Latin Extended, Thai, and now Georgian, with more on the way — each has been engineered to optically match the proportions of its counterparts. Adelle Sans Georgian’s exhaustive character set and OpenType support delivers consistent, flexible, and personable results in digital and printed multilingual documents and multicultural branding.
