Alexon is a serif font family.  It was designed by Les Usherwood, and was digitally engineered by Steve Jackaman.  Alexon began its life as a single weight, however Jackaman expanded on the original designs and produced three additional weights.

Alexon was inspired by ‘Basilea,’ a font created by Markus J. Low in 1965 for Visual Graphics Corporation (VGC).  Basilea won first prize in the 1965 National Typeface Design Competition.

Alexon has a formal, clean feel, and would be right at home in medical journals or professional mastheads.  The family emits confidence and sets well at any size.
