Proxima Nova

TypoWiki : Typefaces : Proxima Nova

Designed by Mark Simonson in 2005, Proxima Nova is a complete reworking of his Proxima Sans from 1994. The original six fonts (three weights with italics) have been expanded to 42 full-featured OpenType fonts. Proxima Nova straddles the gap between typefaces like Futura and Akzidenz Grotesk. The result is a hybrid combining humanistic proportions with a somewhat geometric appearance.
