Alda explores the representation of weight in type

Alda, a typeface that’s currently being developed by Berton Hasebe, is an incredibly interesting exploration of how the weight of type can be conveyed “beyond the width of a stroke”.

“By changing details specific to each weight, my intention was to fully emphasize each weight’s inherent characteristics, where the bold is robust and sturdy, and the light is delicate and soft.”

F**k it, we'll do it live!

Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.

I love the look of Alda even in its incomplete state, and I hope we get to watch its development until it’s published by Emigre when it is completed.
