Alegreya was chosen as one of 53 "Fonts of the Decade" at
the ATypI Letter2 competition in September 2011, and one
of the top 14 text type systems. It was also selected in
the 2nd Bienal Iberoamericana de Diseño, competition
held in Madrid in 2010.
Alegreya is a typeface originally intended for literature.
Among its crowning characteristics, it conveys a dynamic
and varied rhythm which facilitates the reading of long
texts. Also, it provides freshness to the page while
referring to the calligraphic letter, not as a literal
interpretation, but rather in a contemporary typographic language.
