Calibri makes way for five other fonts designed by Microsoft, according to the company in a statement.

Typefaces change again after 14 years

Calibri, the default font for all Microsoft ‘software’, including the Office suite, stop being used by default in the products of the American company, which has proposed five new custom fonts to users to choose their successor.

The Calibri font has been used by default in all Microsoft programs and services for 14 years, when in 2007 it replaced the Times New Roman, the original font in Microsoft Word, and the iconic Arial, which was used in Power Point, Outlook y Excel.

“As people and the world around us age and grow, so should our modes of expression,” Microsoft has assured through a statement, in which he thanked Calibri for the role but stated that “it’s time to evolve”.

To choose the font to replace Calibri, Microsoft has presented five new sources custom originals: Tenorite, Bierstadt, Skeena, Seaford and Grandview

The new sources cover various styles’ sans serif‘, or sans-serif typeface, in which the characters do not use serif or serif endings, and which Microsoft has defined as “humanistic, geometric, Swiss and industrial style”.

The US company allows users to choose your favorite font out of the five proposals, and evaluate it in the coming months. Microsoft has stated that all of them, like Calibri, can be chosen from the font menu of its programs such as Office.
