Alda and Flex

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

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.
