Delvard Gradient

International Association of Art Critics Award

In 2011 Nikola Djurek recieved the International Association of Art Critics Award for his font families Marlene, Delvard, Plan Grotesque.


Carefully chosen display faces are invaluable to typographers. Unlike the text typefaces Marlene, Nota, and Tempera Biblio, display faces and their amplified features are meant to thrive at larger point sizes. Some are loud, like the jaw-droppingly bold Tesla Dynamo; some are delicate, like the spectral Typonine Hairline, and some, like Marlene High, are refinements of core letterforms. Regrettably, mainstream display faces are less sophisticated, often tending toward pastiche or parody which curbs their usefulness. But there are some, like Delvard Gradient, that exceed expectations.

Based on the Art Nouveau-inspired Delvard, Delvard Gradient is no mere accessory – it’s an impressive and expedient Typonine innovation! Developed with large formats in mind, Delvard Gradient allows for serial weight dispersal on the fly. No need to repeatedly tinker with your font menu to feign word gradients, no need to arrange discrete text boxes to get the spacing and progression just right because Delvard Gradient does it all! Typonine’s visionary OpenType programming enables the typeface to think for itself.

Regardless of character count, the Inside, Left, Outside, and Right fonts will automatically adjust character weights to render an inward, leftward, outward, or rightward moving word gradient as you type. Need more than one word gradient? Just press the spacebar to automatically begin another. Need to go from right to left? Just highlight the word and switch to the Left font. It’s that easy. Whether for posters, identities, film titles, billboards, shopfronts, or anything in between, exceptional endeavors require exceptional fonts. Delvard Gradient answers that call.

Typonine fonts are never underdone. Like the previously released typefaces in its impressive library, Delvard Gradient comes with indices, a complete set of monetary symbols, and support for 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.
