Released in 2005, Proxima Nova is an extremely popular typeface designed by Mark Simonson. It is often described as a hybrid of Futura and Akzidenz Grotesk, combining a geometric appearance with modern proportions. In my opinion, Proxima Nova’s use on the web is so ubiquitous that it is starting to feel a little overused. It’s still an excellent font though, so there’s a reason for its popularity. Proxima Nova is available in seven weights—thin, light, regular, semibold, bold, extrabold and black—each with matching italics as well as small caps styles and condensed and extra condensed widths.
