  • About

    Adele Type (@) is an independent type design foundry based in Lyon, France.

    Our aim is to design, produce and distribute beautiful typefaces which will age gracefully and provide incredible functionality over their years of use in what we think is the most fair way possible for each parties.

    We dedicate our time to the design of innovative retail typefaces for our own Type Catalogue and to the design of custom typefaces for diverse clients.
    We don’t distribute our fonts anywhere else but here. We usually (but not always) distribute one hundred (100) fonts to individuals or companies. As such, most of our products are in limited edition. These fonts may be found under the Type Catalogue. We consider typefaces not only as softwares but also as tools. Therefore, we produce complex font-family with a wide set of glyphs and alternates. Our tools should be used in a fair and flexible way without limitation, as such we offer a very flexible desktop/web licensing which allow our clients to benefit fully from our products on any amount of projects they want: whether they be printed, digital or broadcasting.

    If you had to buy a hammer, you should be allowed to use it as much as you want, on whatever you want, wouldn’t you agree? Buying a typeface should be easy. As such, each of our fonts will always cost the same price. We want you to be able to choose exactly which product you want. You can select multiple fonts of your liking and you will be granted a very interesting discount when you desire to work with more than one of our products (the more you get, the bigger the discount).

    In this digital era where distributing a software is as simple as copying it from one workstation to the other we believe reimplementing the idea of a Typeface as a sort of “hardware” is a way of questioning the whole idea of digital distribution and adding another layer of beauty and uniqueness to a font design.

  • Custom typefaces

    When it comes to communication, a custom font is an amazing asset to have. Being able to splash up the vernacular ground with an exclusive font has proven to be a thoughtful strategy. We design custom typefaces in collaborations with our clients to match their needs with the highest care. It is also possible to customise our retail typefaces in order to use something more specific to your needs. Our service includes modifying some glyphs, adding new ones, adding new styles or developing a set of characters for another language such as Cyrillic, etc. Like any other project, the cost of a custom Typeface depends on what you need, get in touch with us about your project and we will figure out something together. We are always happy to work with other people on thrilling projects.
