Acumin is a sans-serif typeface designed by Robert Slimbach and published through Adobe in 2015. Slimbach set out to design a contemporary neo-grotesque that could work as a text face. Designer Jeffrey Zeldman describes Acumin as “a Helvetica for readers.” Acumin is a huge family that is available in five widths—extra condensed, semi condensed, condensed, normal and wide—with each width available in nine weights with matching italics. This comes out to an impressive 90 total styles.
