Alda and Flex

Today we look at Berton Hasebe’s Alda with Paul van der Laan’s Flex.

Alda-and-Flex-1
Alda’s an unconventional family in that it varies in hardness along its weight axis. This is most visible in its italic, which ranges from a soft, smooth texture to one much more rough-hewn. Flex’s strong, even, humanist feel accentuates the range Alda demonstrates and allows its forms to take the primary position of interest.
