Last hours for the Axel promotion

Heads up everyone – today is June 30th, so anyone still interested in grabbing Axel, Erik Spiekermann‘s new typeface at the special introductory price better hurry. Axel is an eco­nom­i­cal, highly leg­i­ble font family opti­mized for on-​screen use in office apps such as Microsoft Excel, and you can read all about it in this previous FontFeed post. What is spe­cial about Axel is less its aes­thetic refine­ment for the reader than its use­ful­ness to people who work at mon­i­tors every day.

  • Sim­i­lar let­ters and num­bers are clearly dis­tin­guish­able (l, i, I, 1, 7; 0, O; e, c …).
  • Increased con­trast between reg­u­lar and bold.
  • Style set link­ing for Office appli­ca­tions (bold key).
  • Small caps instead of ital­ics for emphasis.
  • High leg­i­bil­ity on the mon­i­tor via ClearType support.
  • Good com­ple­ment of num­bers (super­script, sub­script, fractions…).
  • Real WYSI­WYG in Microsoft Excel.
  • Pleas­ing look on paper.
  • PDF and Web embeddable (@font-face allowed)

Until midnight today June 30th Axel is available for down­load at the intro­duc­tory price of only $/€19.90 out­side Ger­many for the set (four styles, licensed for 1 to 5 users). After that the family will cost € 79.90 (both prices exclu­sive of VAT). So don’t waste any time and get Axel while it’s still so cheap.

  1. Bonjour,

    La typo Axel est-elle disponisble en Webfont? Mes recherches semblent infructueuses.

    Merci d’avance.
