The Adagio typeface family is composed of three basic versions: sans-serif, serif, and slab serif. Each has nine weights and italic styles. All together, the designer came up with eighty-one fonts. Mateusz Machalski has created a functional family that could serve, above all, in creating visual identities. All the versions have shared attributes, and thus complement one another splendidly. The typeface is readable, well-balanced, and has correctly designed diacritics, which can cause problems even in professional type foundries.
