Alkes

Named after a star and inspired by the cosmos, the Alkes Font Family travelled a long way from a graduation project to a published multi-script serif type family, delivered to Fontfabric. Designed intending to harmonize between three scripts – Latin (English), Cyrillic, and Greek, the contemporary, yet well defined humanist serif combines the best out of the digital and analog worlds. Featuring a generous x-height, wide letter spacing, large open counters, and angled stress contrast, Alkes Font Family is highly effective for editorials and publishing, where long texts and legibility are the key forces. Its attractive details, calligraphic structure, and asymmetrical serifs shine through in the larger sizes and make Alkes Font Family suitable for headlines.

Alkes Font Family has a pull with editorial designers, graphic designers, and publishers who aim for a clear structure, hierarchy, and coherent non-Latin scripts for both print and on-screen environments, in order to achieve otherworldly designs.

  • Over 1200 glyphs in 14 styles;
  • True form of italics;
  • Humanist character and proportions;
  • Extended Latin, Extended Cyrillic & Greek scripts;
  • Fit for over 130 languages
  • Moderate contrast;
  • Perfect for text, headlines, and web;
  • Coverage of many OpenType features
  • Ligatures, Small Caps, Case sensitive forms, OldStyle figures, Tabular figures, Fractions

One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. He lay on his armour-like back, and if he lifted his head a little he could see his brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections. The bedding was hardly able to cover it and seemed ready to slide off any moment. His many legs, pitifully thin compared with the size of the rest of him, waved about helplessly as he looked. “What’s happened to me?” he thought. It wasn’t a dream. His room, a proper human room although a little too small, lay peacefully between its four familiar walls. A collection of textile samples lay spread out on the table - Samsa was a travelling salesman - and above it there hung a picture that he had recently cut out of an illustrated magazine and housed in a nice, gilded frame. It showed a lady fitted out with a fur hat and fur boa who sat upright, raising a heavy fur muff that covered the whole of her lower arm towards the viewer. Gregor then turned to look out the window at the dull weather. Drops of rain could be heard hitting the pane, which made him feel quite sad.

"What's happened to me?" he thought. It wasn't a dream. His room, a proper human room although a little too small, lay peacefully between its four familiar walls. A collection of textile samples lay spread out on the table - Samsa was a travelling salesman - and above it there hung a picture that he had recently cut out of an illustrated magazine and housed in a nice, gilded frame. It showed a lady fitted out with a fur hat and fur boa who sat upright, raising a heavy fur muff that covered the whole of her lower arm towards the viewer. Gregor then turned to look out the window at the dull weather.
