Font Fridays: Adelle

This week we are excited to have another font giveaway from Veer: the lovely and robust slab-serif Adelle.

Intensely editorial

Designed by José Scaglione and Veronika Burian, Adelle is a slab serif typeface conceived specifically for intensive editorial use. While ideal for newspapers and magazines, Adelle’s many weights and characters, as well as it’s excellent texture and slightly dark color, make it a flexible, multipurpose typeface.

For this week’s giveaway, one lucky Typedia member will win a license to the regular and italic faces from the Adelle family. In love with the entire family? Buy it now from Veer, or check out Veer’s latest releases for more exciting new typefaces.

How it works

As with our last giveaway, anyone can enter by taking just a minute or two of your day to do a good deed for Typedia. It could be something as simple as adding a release year, or uploading a specimen, or contributing some background information. Tell us your good deed in the comments to be entered in the contest. You can only enter once. You have until 9am EST Monday, December 7th to enter. After 9am, a winner will be randomly selected, and we’ll announce the winner here.

Good luck!

Update: And we have a winner! Ben Gilman wins Adelle. Congrats to Ben, and many thanks to Veer for sponsoring the giveaway. See you next Friday!
