With an emphasis on branding, type, and layouts, Adam's design approach focuses on function and appeal. He has been the art director of HOW and PRINT magazines and has been featured in books and blogs. He also created a viral branding video with his daughter that gathered 1,000,000 views in 1 week.
Quiche is a high-contrast, sans serif typeface featuring ball terminals and angled stems. This 52 font superfamily is a complete branding suite. The 4 subfamilies—Display, Fine, Stencil, and Text—were created to work harmoniously together based on the need. With weights ranging from thin to black and matching italics, there are a variety of applications that the fonts can be used for: print, web, branding, advertising, magazines, products, packaging, labels, etc.
The design is influenced by the serif didone genre, characterized by its elegance and extreme thick/thins, but it removes the serifs for a unique and modern expression. The high-contrast style exudes sophistication, while the ball terminals balance it by softening the overall look to make it feel a little more approachable.
For large type settings, like headlines and titles, use Quiche Display, Fine, or Stencil. The Fine styles have the highest contrast, so their beauty shines at really large sizes. For smaller type settings, like body copy and decks, use Quiche Text. It has less contrast and looser character spacing, making it a better reading experience at these sizes.
Quiche has many OpenType features, including:
- Stylistic alternates
- Swash capitals
- Small caps (Text styles only)
- Fractions, subscripts, and superscripts

This font has extensive Latin language support for Western, Central, and South Eastern European.
Quiche will work great right away with most any software (MS Word, Pages, etc.), but to take advantage of the additional OpenType features, OpenType-savvy software (like the Adobe applications) is recommended. Only the swash capitals are PUA-encoded, the other stylistic alternates are not to help preserve functions like spell-checking, searching, and proper glyphs if switching fonts.
