In the early days of mobile devices and game consoles, few people had yet to fathom coming importance of typeface readability on such platforms. Ascender made its mark during this era by working closely with software developers and device makers to create many of the Windows Core Fonts and type for the Xbox 360 and Android phone.
The Ascender library was formed by a team of typographic experts whose focus was set on technical innovation in the field. Anyone who has ever written a high-school essay has likely used an Ascender typeface: the library developed some of the world’s most-used typefaces such as the Arial, Times New Roman, Tahoma and Verdana designs, and many other fonts that Microsoft includes in Windows and Office. It was in 2007 though, that the library’s designers made enormous strides towards the improvement of on-screen user interfaces with the release of the Droid Sans typeface family. This font was designed to be comfortably read in virtually any onscreen environment.
This library is made up of original and revival typefaces steeped with artistic distinction and technical sophistication. Ascender is a typeface library that was founded with the goal of enhancing the typographic choices for creative professionals everywhere.
