Center font designed by Max Phillips is based on a rounded rectangle, its geometry has been subtly refined for smoother reading. Angled branches pay homage to OCR-A. Terminals are gently softened. Early versions had a somewhat science-fictiony look, but over time Center evolved into a crisp and useful text/display family with just a hint of futurity. A combination of open counters, unequivocal curves, and ruler-straight vertical and horizontal strokes suit it admirably for onscreen display. Its seven weights range from the taut, elegant Thin to the massive Ultra, each with a matching italic. Tabular figures duplex across all weights, case-sensitive forms keep punctuation in line, and a variety of alternative glyphs let designers vary its mood at will. A full range of diacritics provides support for over 130 languages.
