Farewell Proxima Nova Soft, hello Proxima Soft

We have just retired Proxima Nova Soft from the Typekit library. Only rarely do we retire font families from our library — and when we do, we want to be sure to let you know how to mitigate any impact on your end.

Moving forward, please use Proxima Soft for your projects. Mark Simonson originally designed Proxima Nova Soft for a client project, which required only a few styles — Regular, Medium, Semibold, and Bold. Proxima Soft, which we added to the library recently, is his expanded and remastered version of this original project.

Like its cousin Proxima Nova, Proxima Soft is an extremely accessible typeface that looks great in a number of settings. It has eight weights from Thin to Black and three widths (Normal, Condensed, and Extra Condensed), all with italics, so it’s a good bit more versatile than the earlier version it’s replacing. See Mark’s overview of Proxima Soft for even more detail.

If you currently have Proxima Nova Soft synced, it will be removed from your sync selection. For any documents you’ve typeset in Proxima Nova Soft, please use the same weights and styles of Proxima Soft for the replacement.

This change does not affect any existing web font kits. Going forward, you will only be able to add Proxima Soft to new kits, but we will continue serving Proxima Nova Soft to websites already using it.

If you have any questions about font retirement or anything else, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our support team at support@typekit.com.
