    Talking Typeface Preference for Responsive Web Design

    Hi there,

    I am posting to ask around what typefaces designers are using to meet the needs of responsive web design, particularly tablet orientated. In my eyes the game is changing abit as a typeface has to ever more frequently meet new demands, such as horizontal positioning and animation. In my mind a couple stand out both aesthetically and functionally:

    Apercu
    Akkurat
    Circular

    The rounded edges, give not only an approachable feel, but fill the space almost in the style of a mono typeface. I argue that with responsive web design for tablets, typefaces such as the above are more practical due to their block or cube like dimensions, that in a sense give them greater flexibility in placement.

    What are you using?

    For those who are interested.
    I am finding that Akzidenz Grotesk, and Brown are also good for these purposes

    Agreed on Avenir. I haven't found a setting it doesn't suit, to be honest.
