Aldone

About the Project

Aldone is a non-conventional geometric, low-contrast, sans-serif typeface inspired by the work of Aldo Novarese, designed by Pietro Gregorini as final project for Type Design course at CPF Bauer in Milan, with the creative direction of Marta Bernstein, Erasmo Ciufo and Beatrice D'Agostino.

The typeface is developed with two different extremes which interpolates in middle weights. The lighter weight is rounded and a bit narrow, taking the shapes of Recta typeface as inspiration. The bolder extreme is more squared following the footsteps of Eurostile, featuring big rounded corners and inktraps.

Weights

Aldone is provided in five different weights, from Light to Bold.

Example

Aldo Novarese
