Designed by George Ryan

On a cold winter’s night while housesitting for friends, bored by a poorly-chosen potboiler from the amply stocked bookshelves of his absent hosts, George Ryan, accomplished creator of numerous typeface designs, began to muse over the growing selection of offerings in the Galapagos Design Group original typeface library.

What was lacking, he decided, was a truly original sans serif typeface. What George produced that night, on his always present sketch pad, is not only original and creative; it is intriguing and unique.

The visual impact of Adderville is immediate and strong. Closer analysis reveals some of the features that contribute to its overall effect. The rounded ends of its strokes and their skewed baseline contact create an illusion of dancing feet. The tops of lowercase stems emit serif buds, suggesting transition into or out of the serifed form. The spear-like lowercase stroke terminators, along with other distinctive elements such as the stylized reticulation of the lowercase ‘g’ segments, the salute of that same character’s spur, and the bold, non-self-conscious ‘i’ and ‘j’ dots, all contribute to the playful and unique nature of this very original design.
