Good, faithful Achates...

Named after the trusty Trojan that followed Aeneas throughout his adventures, Achates is a humanist sans workhorse well suitable for broad range of design projects.

Its soft, delicate and almost cursive shapes define warm and friendly typeface that is legible and easy on the reader's eye. Following into the footsteps of its namesake, it is humble, informal yet stable and trustworthy. Ideally suited for advertising and packaging, editorial and publishing, logo, branding and creative industries, poster and billboards, small text and signage as well as web and screen design.

Achates provides a broad range of advanced typographical features such as language localization, alternates, stylistic alternates, extended ligatures, fractions and case-sensitive forms. It comes with a complete figure range set of old-style, lining and tabular figures. The family has extensive multilingual support, covering more than 70 Latin-based languages and specially designed Cyrillic with Bulgarian and Russian localization.

As Achates was a humble hero, a devoted friend and faithful companion to Aeneas on his journey to greatness, so this font can be your trusty sidekick on your creative path. The marvelous Agate is also named after the Trojan hero. It is considered as the stone to call on for support when you need stability and grounding in your life. Along with its supportive energy, the Agate stone has been long admired for its incredible beauty. So... a Trojan hero or a thing of beauty – it is up for you to decide... or just maybe both!
