Microsoft ClearType Collection





This package contains all 25 OpenType fonts in the Microsoft ClearType Font Collection: Calibri, Cambria, Candara, Consolas, Constantia and Corbel families (each family contains regular, italic, bold and bold italic fonts) and the Cariadings symbol font. These fonts were designed by leading type designers such as Jeremy Tankard (Corbel), Luc[as] de Groot (Consolas, Calibri), Gary Munch (Candara) and John Hudson (Constantia) to take advantage of ClearType technology and improve the reading experience in Windows Vista and Office 2007. The fonts are now available to buy separately for use on other platforms and in other OpenType compatible applications such as the Adobe CS suite and Quark 7.

As well as being optimised for razor sharp on-screen legibility the fonts benefit from an extensive WGL character set covering West & Central European, Cyrillic and Greek making them ideal for Corporate, packaging and multimedia usage. Fonts can be bought as singles, families or as a complete collection.


nav_downCalibri (designer: Luc[as] de Groot)

calibri family

Calibri is a modern sans serif family with subtle roundings on stems and corners. It features real italics, small caps, and multiple numeral sets. Its proportions allow high impact in tightly set lines of big and small text alike. Calibri's many curves and the new rasteriser team up in bigger sizes to reveal a warm and soft character.

nav_downCambria (designers:Jelle Bosma, Steve Matteson, Robin Nicholas, Ross Mills)

cambria family

Cambria has been designed for on-screen reading and to look good when printed at small sizes. It has very even spacing and proportions. Diagonal and vertical hairlines and serifs are relatively strong, while horizontal serifs are small and intend to emphasize stroke endings rather than stand out themselves. This principle is most noticeable in the italics where the lowercase characters are subdued in style to be at their best as elements of word-images. When Cambria is used for captions at sizes over 20 point, the inter-character spacing should be slightly reduced for best results. The design isn't just intended for business documents: The regular weight has been extended with a large set of math and science symbols. The Greek and Cyrillic has been designed under close supervision of an international team of experts, who aimed to set a historical new standard in multi-script type design.

nav_downCandara (designer:Gary Munch)

candara family

Candara is a casual humanist sans with verticals showing a graceful entasis on stems, high-branching arcades in the lowercase, large apertures in all open forms, and unique ogee curves on diagonals. The resultant texture is lively but not intrusive, and makes for a friendly and readable text.

nav_downConsolas (designer:Luc[as] de Groot)

consolas family

Consolas is aimed for use in programming environments and other circumstances where a monospaced font is specified. All characters have the same width, like old typewriters, making it a good choice for personal and business correspondance. The improved Windows font display allowed a design with proportions closer to normal text than traditional monospaced fonts like Courier. This allows for more comfortable reading of extended text on screen. OpenType features include hanging or lining numerals; slashed, dotted and normal zeros; and alternative shapes for a number of lowercase letters. The look of text can be tuned to personal taste by varying the number of bars and waves.

nav_downConstantia (designer:John Hudson)

constantia family

Constantia is a modulated wedge-serif typeface designed primarily for continuous text in both electronic and paper publishing. The design responds to the recent narrowing of the gap between screen readability and traditional print media, exploiting specific aspects of the most recent advances in ClearType rendering, such as sub-pixel positioning. The classic proportions of relatively small x-height and long extenders make Constantia ideal for book and journal publishing, while the slight squareness and open counters ensure that it remains legible even at small sizes.

nav_downCorbel (designer: Jeremy Tankard)

corbel family

Corbel is designed to give an uncluttered and clean appearance on screen. The letter forms are open with soft, flowing curves. It is legible, clear and functional at small sizes. At larger sizes the detailing and style of the shapes is more apparent resulting in a modern sans serif type with a wide range of possible uses.
