Named after a star and inspired by the cosmos, Alkes traveled a long way from a graduation project to a

published multiscript serif type family. Designed with the intention of harmonising between three scripts -

Latin, Cyrillic and Greek, the contemporary, yet well defined humanist serif combines the best out of the

digital and analog worlds.


Featuring a generous x-height, wide letter spacing, large open counters and angled stress contrast, Alkes is

highly effective for editorials and publishing, where long texts and legibility are the key forces. Its attractive

details, calligraphic structure and asymmetrical serifs shine through in the larger sizes and make Alkes suitable

for headlines.


Alkes has a pull with editorial designers, graphic designers and publishers who aim for a clear structure,

hierarchy and coherent non-Latin scripts for both print and on-screen environments, in order to achieve

otherworldly designs
