The design of Aprello originally emerged from the context of my work as a graphic designer. In 2019, a collection of ideas and beliefs emerged that gave shape to a specific sans serif design concept. In the years that followed, I used earlier versions of Aprello in my own work to keep testing, adapting and expanding the design.
The result is a design that is flexible in relation to the medium and its context. It is a typeface that has personality but does not impose it on the designer. It should leave the designer the freedom to put his own stamp on it. With its open forms, vertical terminals and inktraps, Aprello is designed high legibility in mind. At the same time, it has a high x-height that gives the typeface a closed form. This allows it to perform well in all sizes and environments.
To further extend the aspect of flexibility, the character set has a stylistic set with closed shapes, containing 120 characters. The combination of the two sets enables a wide range of typographic concepts and hierarchies for both books and web projects.
Aprello is available in 6 weights: Thin, Light, Regular, SemiBold and Bold, each with the corresponding italic version. In addition to these 12 styles, Aprello has a variable version.

“If we can’t agree on the simplest truths, we ultimately end up in a world nobody agrees with. Our converging on solutions is what actively shapes and defines our future. In a world increasingly blurring the relation between fact and fiction, the layer of politics makes us dysfunctional.”

Raglan is a contemporary approach to newspaper typefaces. Its character follows a fine line between elegant and playful, heavy and light at the same time. Raglan is a typeface that can be understood as a hybrid between serif and grotesque typefaces. Low stroke contrast, single-story g, grotesque proportions and terminals make it a subset of the serif typefaces. Therefore, Raglan has his sans-serif sibling, Raglan Sans that stays close to the construction of the Serif version. The combination of the serif and sans-serif variants with their corresponding italic allows a wide rage typographic concepts and hierarchies for books as well as web projects. With its hard serifs, no-frills approach and the flexibility between the serif and sans serif versions, Raglan is equally suitable for display and text setting in large and small text sizes.
