a contemporary newspaper face

typetogether

Conceived specifically for intensive editorial use,


whether it is in newspapers, magazines or digital
media, Abril is a font family of two worlds. The
titling weights, based on a contemporary revamp
of classic Didone styles, display both neutrality and
strong presence on the page, attracting the reader's
attention with meassured tension in it's curves, good
color and high contrast. It also features typographic
niceties such as ornaments, borders, special dingbats
and alternate letters and numbers that propose a
broad palette of tools to the designer.
The text weights are more closely inspired by both,
19th century slab serifs and scotch roman types. They
maintain consistency with the headline styles, and at
first glance may appear to have the same shapes only
with lower contrast. However, in reality the letter
forms of Abril Text were engineered from scratch to
achieve a color, texture and overall width that allow
using the font comfortably in the most challenging
environments for continuous reading, such as
newspapers. This also makes it a great font family
for pocketbooks and magazines. Abril competes, in
terms of economy of space, head to head with some
newspaper classics such as Utopia or Nimrod, but
featuring a more contemporary look and feel; and
unlike them, includes a full set of small caps with
numbers and punctuation.
The four main text weights of Abril Text were
also manually hinted which grants the possibility
of a smooth transition from printed media to web
platform.
Abril consists of 8 text styles and 10 display styles,
all of them containing the standard TypeTogether
character set that supports over 50 languages
including those from Central and Northern Europe.

Veronika Burian and Jos Scaglione met at the


University of Reading whilst completing their MAs in
Type Design, launching the independent type foundry
TypeTogether (TT for short) in 2006. TT developed
out of the desire to publish high quality typefaces and
work on new type projects together(hence the name).
The foundry provides common grounds for intense
cooperation with other type designers, creating an
interesting and diverse platform.
TypeTogethers main interest is finding innovative
and stylish solutions to old problems for the
professional market of text typefaces, with a focus on
editorial use. This is where the greatest challenges
are faced:creating typefaces that perform well in
continuous reading, that also have a high degree of
personality.
The aesthetic and functional efficiency of TTs
fonts are accompained by excellence in technical
performance. This is achieved using the latest font
software, creating cross-platform Opentype fonts
with extended character sets including: broader
language support and all kinds of typographic
refinements, such as small caps, ligatures and
multiple numeral sets.
In addition to TypeTogethers high quality library of
retail fonts, TT also provides custom modifications
and specially tailored typefaces; thesecanserve
as vital elements of a companys visual identity,
bycommunicatinga unique feel. Custom typeface
projects are developed fromsolid foundations, based
on the clients brief, targeted research and theopen
dialogue between all parties.
A big advantage of being a small and specialized
company is that this allows for closer, and more
direct, collaboration with clients; this is often
necessary to accomplish their goals, and respond
quickly to their needs.
The quality of TypeTogethers work has
already been recognized in several international
competitions, including TDC and ED-Awards.
