About Alike

Creator:

License: SIL Open Font License, 1.1

Alike is a text typeface with expressive and tense letterforms. Its design features are said to have Czech influence, but are softened for a friendlier feel. The proportions are regular and the contrast is low for a pleasant reading experience. It was initially designed by Sveta Sebyakina 2009-2011.

Updated: January 2016 to Version 1.212, to correct GPOS table (enabling kerning, so the horizontal metrics may change, causing some reflow in Firefox where kerning is used by default.)
