Georgia Pro & Verdana Pro
Two classics come up trumps: Georgia Pro and Verdana Pro each with five weights and condensed variantsThey were originally developed specifically as screen fonts and are available on all operating systems. Because of this, the two typefaces Georgia and Verdana are among the fonts most frequently used on websites. With the new, expanded Pro version both fonts can be used with greater versatility.
More weights and more stylesAnd this is exactly where an improvement in the new Pro version is relevant. Working in collaboration with Matthew Carter, David Berlow of Font Bureau, Steve Matteson and Tom Rickner of Monotype have extended Georgia and Verdana by three further weights; both fonts now have a total of five weights with the addition of Light, Semibold and Black to the original Regular and Bold. Completely new are the Condensed typefaces that are available for all weights. It was the objective of Matteson, the creator of Georgia Pro, to open up new options for designers to use the additional weights and styles in headlines, subheadlines, for accentuation and quotes.
As in the case of the old Georgia and Verdana, all weights of Georgia Pro and Verdana Pro have their corresponding Italic variants.
