The Inter UI font family. Inter UI is a typeface specially designed for user interfaces with focus on high legibility of small-to-medium sized text on computer screens.
The family features a tall x-height to aid in readability of mixed-case and lower-case text. Several OpenType features are provided as well, like contextual alternates that adjusts punctuation depending on the shape of surrounding glyphs, slashed zero for when you need to disambiguate “0” from “o”, tabular numbers, etc.
Inter UI is similar to Roboto, San Francisco, Akkurat, Asap, Lucida Grande and other “UI” typefaces. Some trade-offs were made in order to make this typeface work really well at small sizes:
- Currently not suitable for very large sizes because of some small-scale glyph optimizations (like “pits” and “traps”) that help rasterization at small sizes but stand out and interfere at large sizes.
Current font styles:
- Regular — master
- Medium — derived from Regular and Black by mixing
- Bold — derived from Regular and Black by mixing
- Black — master
