About this font
Agile is based on the postgraduate exam-project with the same name from TypeMedia in The Hague. The text-pattern and display settings contain a liveliness that was derived from an organic work process while the type family was in development.
In a time when new text faces are published almost every day, Edgar noticed a gap between clean, rather technical faces, and those typefaces with pronounced influences from handwriting. What he found lacking was a design that united the advantages of these two approaches – a typeface that was natural, yet clear. Starting with experimental, unusual letterforms, the design gradually evolved, in a process of fine-tuning and adapting the characters to each other until they formed a harmonious whole. Compared to many other digitally produced fonts, Agile has a large number of unique shapes — similar segments that nevertheless are not simply clones of each other, but have been adapted to the individual letters. This approach lends Agile its lively and organic nature.
The result of this rather artisanal method is a pleasurable alphabet that is suitable for both headlines and longer body text; its spirited nature is evident in small as well as in larger point sizes.
The Agile family comes in 10 weights, from the extremely thin Hairline to the mighty Fat. The 10 upright styles are accompanied by 10 true italics — 20 fonts in all, each including small caps, extensive language support, several sets of numerals, a fine choice of ligatures, many alternate letters and more. These features make Agile a reliable tool for almost any typographic challenge.
Agile comes with all features for advanced typography and supports all Latin-based languages.
