ATF throws another font on the barbie
Halvorsen hints at a Scandinavian simplicity, harkening to the clinical purity of classics like Erik Spiekermann’s Meta and Info Text, combined with a more casual warmer tone. The result, from Wayne Thompson of The Australian Type foundry is a text family at once open and versatile, flavored with a little more of the famously friendly Australian personality than the serious northern European text families. Offered as an OpenType font, complete with small caps, fractions, ligatures, and non-lining numerals, Halvorsen is a modern sans-serif with a high x-height, suitable for text usage. Halvorsen is simultaneously formal and friendly. Think of it as Meta after a few drinks.
