Acolyte font family


Designed by Brian Sooy
An elegantly refined typeface with a subtle wedge serif, the character shapes of Acolyte AEF set a rhythm of light and dark like windows in a cathedral.

Standing tall (as in condensed!) and respectful, Acolyte AEF is aptly named as a companion to any design, packaging and advertising.

Acolyte will illuminate your designs with a display typeface reminiscent of European 20th century letterforms. Its distinctive letterforms are slightly chiseled and angular with curves in just the right places.

Wrapped in an aura of mystery, Acolyte’s origins are from condensed typefaces, with an understated gothic feel.

Available for Macintosh and Windows, and in Postscript and TrueType formats, Acolyte AEF will set an edgy tone for all of your design needs. Complete with an Adobe-standard character set, this font also includes the Euro and is cross-platform compatible.

Features

Standard Ligatures

Tag: liga

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers the ligatures which the designer/manufacturer judges should be used in normal conditions. The glyph for ffl replaces the sequence of glyphs f f l.

Ordinals

Tag: ordn

Function: Replaces default alphabetic glyphs with the corresponding ordinal forms for use after figures. One exception to the follows-a-figure rule is the numero character (U+2116), which is actually a ligature substitution, but is best accessed through this feature. The user applies this feature to turn 2.o into 2.o (abbreviation for secundo).

Superscript

Tag: sups

Function: Replaces lining or oldstyle figures with superior figures (primarily for footnote indication), and replaces lowercase letters with superior letters (primarily for abbreviated French titles). The application can use this feature to automatically access the superior figures (more legible than scaled figures) for footnotes, or the user can apply it to Mssr to get the classic form.
