Alegreya was chosen as one of the 53 "Fonts of the Decade" at the ATypI Letter2 competition in Sept. 2011, and in the top 14 text type systems. It was also selected in the 2nd Bienal Iberoamericana de Diseño, competition held in Madrid in 2010.
Among its crowning characteristics, it conveys a dynamic and varied rhythm which facilitates the reading of long texts. Also, it provides freshness to the page while referring to the calligraphic letter.
The italic has just as much care and attention to detail in the design as the roman. The bold weights are strong, and the Black weights are really experimental for the genre.
Alegreya provides great performance, but also achieves a strong and harmonious text. It is a "super family", originally intended for literature, and includes serif and sans serif sister families.
