    Good job! but Arial called and it wants its oblique terminals back. See the micro version, it just feel plain wrong :-) Then again, if I see them I would have set the font too big.

    I'm curious though, it is supposed to be made for UI but it is set very wide, that's not going to help on phones or watches where lines are either too short or the font too small.

    Maybe we need a compact UI cut of this.

      In UI experiments so far, Helvetica Now's "Text" cut is able to handle almost all small text for screens apart from very very small labels. "Micro" is set wider and probably comes into its own for print – where 4pt text is commonplace. It will be interesting to see how folks use it for digital!
