LFT Etica improved for better screen rendering

Another week, another TypeTogether font upgrade. LFT Etica has been updated for better screen rendering and cross-platform consistency: its Regular, Italic, Bold, and Bold Italic styles have been manually TrueType hinted for sharp rendering at small sizes on Windows.

On top of that, LFT Etica’s vertical metrics have been improved for consistency across browsers and operating systems. 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.

Upgrade to a Personal plan or higher to use LFT Etica. If you’re already a Typekit customer, enjoy the improved fonts! If you’ve never tried Typekit, sign up (it’s free). You can upgrade at any time.
