Named after a star and inspired by the cosmos, Alkes traveled a long way from a graduation project to a published multiscript serif type family. Designed with the intention of harmonising between three scripts – Latin, 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 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 suitable for headlines. Alkes 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

The Story of Gregor Samsa

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.
