we use the typeface Proxima Nova Semibold for one of our clients. Unfortunately the font renders bad at smaller font-sizes (18px) Please take a look at the attached Image. We bought the font at MyFonts.com. At the Adobe Font Section the typeface is rendered nicely. https://adobe.ly/2wCXt9k
Is there a way to optimize the font that it renders much smoother in small sizes? If there is no way, can you prefer a very close Alternative with a very good legibility?
Thanks a lot for your help.
There may be differences in the font formats involved.
The Proxima Nova fonts offered via the Adobe Fonts service are in OpenType CFF format. The same fonts offered by MyFonts.com are offered in either OpenType CFF (Type 1 Bezier outlines and hinting) or OpenType TTF (TrueType quadratic outlines) formats. The Proxima Nova fonts that I have on my particular systems are OpenType CFF and I have see no problem at small point sizes. Did you license the OpenType CFF or the OpenType TTF version? That might account for some differences.
thanks for your quick reply. I forgot to mention that we use the font as a webfont for the clients website. Thank you very much!
