Have you ever found the perfect typeface... but wished you could ask for a slight tweak or expansion? The new Adobe Type Concepts program is giving you that chance, with an approach to typeface design unlike anything we’ve tried before. Vortice Concept, by Miguel Sousa, is the first typeface developed under the Adobe Type Concepts program, and is available on Typekit for desktop and web use with any plan level.
As an Adobe Type Concept font, Vortice debuts in a single weight with Latin uppercase characters and some punctuation. A typical Adobe type design effort takes about two years to develop from idea to final product; to make Vortice, the challenge for Miguel was to develop the new face in six months, while working on other projects. “Generally, type design is a somewhat solitary undertaking,” commented Miguel. “Often it is only after the font is completed and provided to customers that you begin to get feedback. With Adobe Type Concepts we talked about what it might be like to get users involved earlier in the process. I’m really excited to hear what our customers have to say, and to see where their input takes me.”
We look forward to hearing what features and enhancements you would like to see in future versions. Miguel will start working on the next iteration of Vortice this summer, and will take all the feedback we receive into consideration.
