                              About Arek Latin

                              Arek is Rosetta’s award-winning collection of Latin and Armenian families. Originally designed for use in textbooks and the schoolroom, Arek is an active typeface that holds the reader’s attention with kinetic details tucked into restrained letterforms on the page. For clarity and ease of reading, Arek pairs its nuanced upright and its perky italic styles for both scripts.

                              Though first designed with school books in mind, Arek equips the typographer with eight styles covering a wide range for editorial and other challenging typesetting environments. Essential expert features such as ligatures, lining and ranging figures, and contextual alternates ensure Arek is ready for any assignment. Extras like a full array of bullets, dingbats, and manicules make this family nimble enough to make the grade with readers in all sorts of editorial projects.

                              What others say

                              • It’s vivacious and playful in large sizes, and also full-proportioned, open, and effortlessly readable in text sizes, adding an undercurrent of frenetic energy to the flow of body copy.
                                Mark Jamra for Typographica
                              • The Armenian typography has old history but it’s still too young compared to Latin computer fonts. There is not enough fonts for making layouts, and we are always looking for something interesting and new. So when I’ve accidentally found Arek it was a good luck for us.
                                Gegham Vardanyan, Yerevan magazine
                              • … it melodiously announces that a multi-script typeface need have neither a servile non-Latin component, nor a Latin that’s either swiped or a generic afterthought.
