Proxima Nova is an expanded and revised version of Proxima Sans, also designed by Mark Simonson but released in 1994. Proxima Nova supports a large range of languages and writing systems, including Greek and Cyrillic. It also includes extras such as different number styles (proportional lining, tabular lining, proportional old style, and tabular old style) and alternate characters for stylistic options and increased legibility.
Proxima Nova is a hybrid design, combining elements of the geometric sans serif genre with the even-width proportions of a modern grotesk. The thin, oblique joins in the lowercase give it a crisp appearance in text. A wide range of weights (eight from Thin to Black) and widths (Normal, Condensed, and Extra Condensed) were created in both roman and italic for a total of 48 fonts, to give designers maximum flexibility.
Proxima Nova has become a very popular typeface family, consistently one of the top sellers at major font distributors over the last five years or so. On the web, it has been the most widely used commercial webfont for as long as webfonts have been available (since 2009). It is also very popular for use in mobile apps, corporate branding, and in film and television.
