My thoughts on Andada Pro

After so many sans-serif typefaces, It’s time for a little variety, and the free font Andada Pro is perfect for that. This typeface is made for body text, with a medium stroke contrast that is just right to give you that classy book serif vibes. For a slab serif typeface, Andada Pro is very fluid and organic – more on this in the upcoming Font Friday Digest on Patreon.

Andada Pro seems traditional Charming & Calligraphic with a Contemporary Touch. This typeface is made for body text. It has medium contrast, but enough to give you that printed book, classy serif vibes. Technically it’s a slab serif, but very dynamic and fluid. Its lively italics and especially the small caps make Andada Pro so pro and so beautiful for running text.
Feel the calligraphic passion in the italics and adore those small caps!

But it also seems quite modern. You might say: “But this is a serif, how can it be modern?”. It always depends on what you set it next to. Traditional serif typefaces like Garamond or Baskerville have much more stroke contrast, which makes them seem more noble, but also a bit dusty.

Andada Pro is Classic and modern. EB Garamond and Baskerville both seem Classic, not modern.
Compared to classics like Garamond or Baskerville you can see how simple and contemporary Andada Pro looks.

Andada Pro was designed to be used in a specific bilingual context, Spanish and Guaraní, which is spoken by indigenous people in South America. Guaraní language uses the Latin system and a special character, named puso. The correct sign to represent it, is the saltillo, not an apostrophe, nor a prime. Learn more about Guaraní language at the Andada Pro minisite.

Apostrophe: Used to mark a missing sound or as single quote
Prime: mathematical sign, used in GPS coordinates
is 'school' in Guaraní.
Saltillo: correct to represent a glottal occlusion or stop phoneme in Guaraní.
The saltillo is a special sign, correctly representing the puso in Guaraní.

The typeface is also packed with a ton of OpenType Features, like stylistic alternates, fractions, and gorgeous rare ligatures, even more beautiful set in Black Italic, as you can see below. I can imagine the italics being used for package design or in other display text. The Romans work best for long reading text.

Turning rare ligatures on will turn you on 😍 Just love how elegantly these characters melt together …

Overall, Andada Pro is a gem, supporting immersive reading experiences with a certain finesse, waiting for you to let your content shine in 219 different languages.
