Alice, by Marta Bernstein, is type family designed primarily for use in magazines that offer long articles and essays, where columns of text are accompanied by distinct and expressive headlines.
Alice has size-specific styles that explores the relationship between text and display letterforms. The design goes beyond optical adjustments and creates features specific to each intended size of use. The display weight has less constraints and more subtle details on the same skeleton: titles need to express a stronger personality and to be more outspoken than a text face.
