pointerAcumin, il sans-serif di Adobe per ebook

Adobe ha rilasciato un nuovo font, Acumin, studiato apposta per diventare l’Helvetica degli ebook:

When Robert Slimbach saw the movie Helvetica, his thought was: but it’s all signage! There was no talk about text. He reflected that Helvetica had always been a display typeface, never really designed for text, but that it had become so popular that it got forced into the mold of a text typeface and used that way constantly. It could be very appealing for that use, with its even appearance, but its design parameters and letterfit didn’t really suit text.
