Adelle Sans, Adelle, and Calluna updated for better screen rendering

Three of our most popular fonts – Adelle Sans, Adelle, and Calluna – have been updated for better screen rendering and cross-platform consistency: Adelle Light and Semibold (plus their italics); Adelle Sans Regular and Bold (plus their italics); and Calluna Regular and Bold (plus their italics). Each of these fonts has now been manually TrueType hinted for crisp rendering at text sizes.

In addition, the vertical metrics of each font in these families have been revised for cross-platform consistency. Because vertical metrics updates may cause slight positioning changes in some designs, we don’t roll out these kinds of changes automatically. Instead, just republish your kits to receive the new files.

If you’re already a Typekit customer, enjoy the improved fonts! Or, if you’ve never given Typekit a try, sign up (it’s free) and upgrade as you need to.
