It’s the letter no font wants to receive.


“It has served us all well, but we believe it’s time to evolve,” the Microsoft Design team在博客帖子中写道星期三,该公司表示,它委托了五个新的自定义字体,以跨Office应用程序,微软365及以后的默认。

“默认字体可能是最值得注意的缺席of the impression they make,” Microsoft said. “We seldom give them much thought, and therein lies their greatest gift. When a font blends into the background of a user experience, people can jump right into the creative process and stay grounded in their thoughts rather than thinking about the form those thoughts take.”

Calibri于2007年更换了Microsoft Office的新罗马的次数。以下是对潜在替代品的一些编辑描述:

  • 代理人:overall look of a traditional workhorse sans serif, but with a warmer, more friendly style.
  • Bierstadt:a precise, contemporary sans serif typeface inspired by mid-20th-century Swiss typography.
  • Skeena:基于传统Serif文本字体的形状的“人文主义”Sans Serif。
  • Seaford:a sans serif typeface that is rooted in the design of old-style serif text typefaces and evokes their comfortable familiarity.
  • Grandview:a sans serif derived from classic German road and railway signage, which was designed to be legible at a distance and under poor conditions.

Microsoft is inviting users toweigh in on social media, and says don’t worry, even if the one you like isn’t the next default font, all will be available in the font menu … alongside Calibri.
