    A prototypical neo-grotesk for good screen legibility in small sizes; I beg to differ, strongly.

    Here is an article about a font family I designed that actually shows what features are intended to help legibility in screen interfaces, and why. That design is based on having researched scientific papers, user studies and testing in actual interfaces for over a year. It so happens I wrote my Master’s thesis on this particular subject.

    In my opinion Inter UI shines through its marketing, the acclaim of its designer and the generic neo-grotesk genre’s convincing familiarity, not its UI legibility.
