Molto – Xavier Dupré new release

Xavier Dupré’s Molto slab serif family

Every once in a while something new gets added to an old standby. In this case, a tough slab serif has been jolted with a strong shot of exuberant flourishes. TypeTogether is proud to announce Molto — another significant release by Xavier Dupré. Molto is a slab serif font with large sections of stalwart concrete that are tempered by thin mohair connections. Its nine roman weights ensure posters and magazine headlines receive an elevated and contrasting treatment and captions are as legible as normal text. Grab a coffee and wake your eyes with a powerful and gentle take on slab fonts.

Anatomy of Type Arabic

Anatomy of Arabic letterforms, or ‘What’s that curved part?’

Our core team is constituted by some of the top individuals in their respective fields. In the first of a short series, type designer Azza Alameddine of Adelle Sans Arabic fame, writes about the parts of letterforms in Arabic script. English terminology for Latin-based type is clear and mostly settled, but in other languages there is no such clear consensus. So how do multi-script type users and designers discuss specific letterform parts? Here we offer proposals toward a standard in type anatomy, with future instalments covering Devanagari, Greek, Latin, and more, so be on the lookout for those.

Type in use – Adelle Sans Armenian

Type in use: Reconciling with Adelle Sans Armenian

While a simple font may not change the world or the hearts of those who inhabit it, we spend honest effort in trying to move one more step in a positive direction. Such is the case with the one-time multilingual magazine, “Acting Together,” for which we were honoured to serve its Armenian, English, and Turkish audience with the Adelle Sans superfamily. Take a journey with the team pursuing reconciliation along national borders in this article.
