Lexend was designed by Bonnie Shaver-Troup and Thomas Jockin in 2018 as a typeface that helps improving reading proficiency. The design is based on the Quicksand project from Andrew Paglinawan. Comes in 8 subfamilies of increading width and spacing; Lexend, Lexend Deca, Lexend Exa, Lexend Giga (used for sample), Lexend Mega, Lexend Peta, Lexend Tera, Lexend Zetta. Turned into a variable font with weight axis (Thin to Black) by Font Bureau in March 2021.
Readex is an expansion of Lexend to Arabic, made in July 2021 by Nadine Chahine.
