Robert Slimbach, typeface designer
Adobe, client

“When Adobe asked Robert Slimbach to rethink the traditional neogrotesque typeface, he observed that this midcentury modernist style works much better at large sizes than for blocks of text. As a text-oriented designer, Slimbach set out to bring this classic look to a family that reads well in body copy. The resulting typeface, Acumin, offers a wide range of weights and widths for many uses, with intermediate weights and widths specifically optimized for running text.”
