About Ardoise Std Compact
Ardoise is a straightforward sans serif typeface in twenty fonts and four widths. It is inspired by the needs of today’s fine newspapers. Adroise offers simple and tense shapes designed to renew and revitalize. Ardoise could be considered as a homage to Roger's Excoffon Antique Olive, but quite indirectly. It shares a purity and dynamics with Excoffon’s designs giving it a unique elegance and excellent readability. Its sturdiness means it is virtually immune to distortion. Each font features a full glyph set covering nearly all languages used in the latin script. A few alternates glyphs (a, c, g, l) can be used to alter the overall tone of a text setting.
