Maxular




Six years in the making, Maxular is a new, rounded slab serif typeface by award winning designer, author, and educator Steven Skaggs. Maxular Rx is the first typeface expressly designed — and proven in scientific tests — to address the visual distortions caused by Macular Degeneration (MD), which afflicts over six million people globally.

Special features of the Rx versions
Unlike most general low-vision fonts, which are sans-serif, Maxular Rx is a serifed font; studies have shown that under the particular distortions of macular degeneration, serifs aid in separating one letter from another while reinforcing the reading line. The terminals of all strokes and serifs are rounded to avoid angular distortion effects. Likewise, all of the junctions in the typeface have been rounded to inhibit distortion flares.

The letter forms are extended in order to project clearly to peripheral vision. A very large x-height helps the font body appear larger to the eye. Inter-letter and word spacing is more open to assure the glyphs are distinctly discriminated. Greater line spacing is built-in, to prevent overcrowding in the vertical dimension even in apps and on devices that do not allow for increased linespace. Oversize punctuation (including the jots of the i and j) and modification of such signs as @ and % also aid the reader. In the bold weight, the specially designed e, a, and s have a wider aperture in their counter spaces to aid recognition. The two Maxular Rx fonts are free for personal use.

The other Maxular fonts
Of course, we didn’t stop at just the two Maxular Rx versions. Understanding that some of the special features Rx employs could be distracting for normal-sighted readers, Skaggs re-drew many glyphs and drew new italics for the six Maxular (non-Rx) versions, intended for everyday use. The Maxular family boasts twelve fonts: six weights ranging from ExtraLight to Bold plus six corresponding true drawn italics.

Going further afield
Every font in the Maxular family has a character set of over 700 glyphs, with support for 220 languages including Czech, Polish, Turkish, and Vietnamese. Also look for a useful set of eight arrows in each font and a handful of fun alternate glyphs in the italics.

Maxular is a versatile, friendly and easy to read typeface. Use it as a fresh alternative in place of other typewriter style fonts for its proportional spacing, its high readability, and superior legibility for copy set in smaller sizes. It is a sound choice for extended text settings and holds its own at display sizes.
