The first release of an international quality Opentype family from any Australian designer, Halvorsen is designed to be readable at small sizes. The large x-height and rounded curves offer a functional but more casual alternative to the flood of more serious text families on the market.
Halvorsen contains Opentype features such as ligatures, fractions and a full set of true small caps. The family also contains the extended European language glyph set, including Central European.
The family of 8 weights consists of Light, Regular, Bold and Extrabold with matching italics for each. To see more details about each weight, you can download a comprehensive PDF sample by clicking on the GET PDF SAMPLE button above. The PDF shows Halvorsen in various text settings and sizes, as well as showing the complete character set.
Halvorsen was an entrant in the 2007 Type Director's Club Typeface Design competition.
