Among other things you can read about the development of Acorde and Sindelar, their specific purposes and qualities, and the similarities these two type families have in common.

I Love Typography presents the making of Sindelar

At ilovetypography.com there is a series of articles on the making of fonts. My contribution, Making Fonts: Sindelar, is the most recent article in this series. The article describes the requirements of newspaper typefaces in general and gives an insight into the specific decisions made during the development of Sindelar.

If you want to learn more about Sindelar and its qualities just take a look at the article at I Love Typography. A few years ago, shortly after the release of Acorde, an article on The making of Acorde was published at I Love Typography too.

Acorde/Sindelar Bundles are now available

Sindelar and Acorde complement each other perfectly. Thus many clients are interested in using both type families alongside one another. The Acorde/Sindelar Bundle reflects this demand and merges all 14 styles of Acorde and all 18 styles of Sindelar into an attractive bundle of 32 styles. All styles are fully equipped with a huge character set and numerous OpenType features.

In addition there is also a bundle of the small packages of Acorde and Sindelar available. It consists of four styles of Acorde and four styles of Sindelar. It is more easily affordable than the full bundle but also offers great design possibilities and still decreases the price per style.
