“Audree is type system [not the plant from a Little Shop of Horrors] with several hundred customizable styles. Choosing between fifteen different serif shapes, two construction models, high or low contrast, and adding stencil or inline effects results in unique, expressive variations of Audree’s letterforms,” say the designers Nikola Djurek with Marko Hrastovec of Typonine.
Typonine.com’s online application allows typographers to access each possible permutation and create a distinct version. (See video here.) “Audree’s many different, striking combinations make it a perfect fit for display purposes such as magazine headlines, logotypes or entire visual identity systems.”
Audree supports all Latin based European languages: Afrikaans, Azeri (Latin), Basque, Bosnian, Breton, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Esperanto, Estonian, Faroese, Finnish, French, Friulian, German, Greenlandic, Hawaiian, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Interlingua, Irish, Gaelic, Italian, Kurdish (Latin), Latvian, Lithuanian, Luxemburgish, Malay, Maltese, Māori, Norwegian (Bokmål, Nynorsk), Polish, Portuguese, Rhaeto-Romanic, Romani, Romanian, Sámi (Inari, Lule, Nrthern, Southern), Serbian (Latin), Slovak, Slovene, Sorbian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Turkish and Welsh.
