Used by default in the office for almost fifteen years, Calibri’s day has arrived. Microsoft has decided to change its number 1 policy. The Redmond firm has selected five candidates to succeed it. And you have your say!
Calibri has been the default font for Microsoft’s Office suite since 2007, when it replaced Times New Roman. The company wrote on its site, “She believes that we have done a good job.
Microsoft has ordered five original and personalized fonts, from which it will choose its new favorite. A decision, which does not appear to touch it, constitutes an important moment for the firm established by Bill Gates.
“Default fonts are perhaps the most noticeable that they produce from lack of printing. We rarely think about it, and that is his greatest asset. When a font is blended into the backdrop of the user experience, people can jump right into the creative process and stay grounded in their ideas rather than pointing out what ideas they take, “Microsoft Notes.”
The final decision will be made by Microsoft after an evaluation that will last for several months. Meanwhile, the company invites internet users to give their impressions of the five candidates through social networks. The four “losers” will not be thrown into oblivion anyway, as they will be added to the menu of available fonts, where nostalgia can also be calibrated.
Tenorite, Bierstadt, Skeena, Seaford and Grandview, the five contenders, can now be tested on office applications. They are also presented in detail on the Microsoft site.
