Orelo Typefaces
Collection

Orelo is more than a typeface, it’s a big font-family turned into a variable-font. It comes with 120 styles ranging from Condensed Hairline to Wide Heavy, Italics, and a special Text version. That why I like to call it a ‘Collection’.

Orelo Typefaces allows demanding users to work with more than just those predefined styles of a common retail font family. You can enjoy an array of almost endless amount of weights and widths, smoothly blending from Hair to Heavy. Select and use any intermediate style, either one at a time, or all mixed simultaneously. This freedom offers new creative possibilities, no matter if you're designing for print or web.

THE BRIEF STORY

Orelo was initiated as a research to find an alternative to the French Didot style font. Suggested some new approach in the field of ultra-constrasted typefaces was my goal.

Firstly I began to design a serif font where all the characteristics - contrast, square serifs, connection - were clearly visible, but it was too close to a Didot font and, for me, too boring.

Indeed, Orelo is drawing with an extreme contrast, refinement, balanced and contemporary letterforms. Orelo get an elegant sensation, and sometimes, a futuristic flavor. The Hairline version is really really light but keep all the details and will be perfect for a big display headline. The Text version (from Hair to Heavy in the standard weight) is less contrasted and could be used for long text.
