What is the Lucida® font?
Lucida, designed and produced by Kris Holmes and Charles Bigelow in 1985, is one of the first typefaces designed with both bitmapped display screens and laser printing in mind.
Lucida was also one of the first of the super family typefaces, sharing proportions and weights between serif and sans.
The Lucida typefaces perform well under adverse conditions such as fax transmission, low resolution printing, small point sizes, and reversed-out of halftones. More…
