Free Proxima Nova Font Alternatives in 2019

Proxima Nova is american type designer Mark Simonson’s most popular font family, a beautiful geometric-grotesque sans-serif that he created in 1994 and revised in 2005.

It’s one of my personal favorites, and one of the most used premium fonts on the web. This article explores the free alternatives available as of May 2019.

Enjoy and good luck with your projects! 🙂
