                                                    About Adapter Pan-European (PE)

                                                    Adapter is built for contemporary modernist aesthetics expressed by two logics. It oscillates between two personalities to fit your needs.

                                                    On one hand, modernist sans serifs or neo-grotesques are an unobtrusive, basic, or even default choice for continuous texts. On the other, they may be selected to make a strong stylistic statement in posters, magazines, or book covers — exhibiting minimalism or unaesthetics. To fit these different objectives, Adapter needed two different sets of shapes.

                                                    Adapter Text acts as if it were designed by a typographer who cares mostly about ergonomics, ease of reading, and an even rhythm. The accentuated features, generous spacing, overall openness, and slightly squarish counters all lend themselves well to low resolutions, honouring the reading experience.

                                                    Adapter Display looks like it was designed by an architect — a lover of impact, symmetry, alignment, and black colour. Its round shapes are rounder than Adapter Text and its spiky parts, spikier. It remains casually uninvolved, but it has personality. It is slightly narrower and tightly spaced for a striking impression in headlines. Targeting display sizes permits it a wider range of usable weights.

                                                    Adapter PE is also available as a single, lightweight variable font, packing the whole range of weights, the size-specific Display and Text variants, and even italics into a single, feather-light file.

                                                    The Adapter World collection currently supports Arabic, Cyrillic, Georgian, Greek, Hebrew, Latin, and Tamil and is determined to grow. These simple, flexible solutions to communicate globally are developed in collaboration with respected script experts to stay authentic and faithful to local preferences.
