Abril Titling font
Abril font system was released in 2011. In 2012 it took 4 prestigious type awards: Bienale Brno 2012, Gold at Ed-Awards 2012, Tipos Latinos 2012, Typographica Best fonts of 2011. Today we see the latest evolutionary addition to this existing font collection – the Abril Titling font family – and we definitely have some great expectations about all these 32 fonts. As you could all see Abril Titling font is targeted on editorial design community demands and is a sophisticated font system producing best results when used for low contrast headlines. Despite the fact that it continues the tradition started back in 2011 with original Abril family, Abril Titling could be fully considered as a separate font family that can’t be used independently from its predecessor.
Showing the remarkable total of 32 fonts, Abril Titling font is developed in four different series, each presented by four separate widths + matching italics. Condensed styles are best for strong headlines in big sizes, while wide styles, because of their enhanced legibility, are best for smaller headlines where condensed fonts sometimes are difficult to read. So the Abril Titling system covers a wide range of options when used for setting titles – from small sized to large prominent headlines. This rule of usage can be easily applied both for print graphics and for screen applications as well.
Though it is a dedicated family, titling is not the only possible use – designed with maximum precision in every detail Abril Titling shows unlimited potential when used for large text paragraphs even in electronic books where sizes are easily scalable, typographic posters, annual reports, corporate identity and packaging. It is fully open type compatible and having the right software will make Abril Titling a versatile tool for those graphic and web designers looking for a workhorse with classic strong presence.
