Reflecting the spirit of Dutch antique fonts such as Plantin and Times, the Recife typeface is carefully crafted to meet the editorial needs of today.
This innovative calligraphy reimagines traditional letterforms by cleverly integrating extra spacing within the counterspaces of letters like a, f, and s, resulting in a unique and distinctive aesthetic.
Offering two distinct styles, Recife caters to different needs. The Text style prioritises legibility and sharpness at smaller sizes, while its Display counterpart embraces character and plays with contrasts. By blending classic elements with a contemporary aesthetic, Recife encapsulates a harmonious balance. For more details on the design process of Recife, please visit our notes.
The typeface is available as individual weights and as a variable font with an axis Light → Black plus an axis Text → Display. The family package includes two variable fonts: upright and italic.
