About Proxima Nova

Although remarkably similar to Gotham™, Proxima™ is a design originally named Zanzibar and conceived by Mark Simonson in 1981 whereby predating Gotham by more than 20 years. In 1994, the name was changed to Proxima Sans and released through FontHaus as a family of six fonts - three weights with matching italics. The name Proxima was chosen to acknowledge that it was near other sans serifs in design and also because the letters in the name displayed some of the more identifiable characteristics of the design. In the early 2000s, Mark began working on fonts again, and started to get suggestions to expand the Proxima Sans family.

In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine chose it as part of their latest redesign. Inspired by this success, Mark began work on a new Proxima Sans family even more ambitious than he had originally envisioned. The result is Proxima Nova™, a family of 48 fonts—built from the ground up for the OpenType format, with advanced typographic features and a range of styles wide enough to take on the most demanding typographic applications.

See the Proxima Nova Chart, showing all the weights and styles in the family.

Each Proxima Nova OpenType font includes:

  • Small Caps
  • Old Style Figures
  • Lining Figures
  • Alternate Characters
  • Language Support
Proxima Nova Complete Family, version 3.002 includes all Alternates and Small Caps totaling 144 fonts.

There are 48 available in this family (53 containing any).
