Yes, Simonson is retiring the first version (your link) which was a simple release. This new version is a complete family that works in conjunction with Proxima Nova, same amount of weights. Lots more details and insight from him in the blog post...
Keep going with your idea, there can never be enough ideas for browsing for fonts. This is why we continue to develop https://fontpath.com, as we can provide tens of thousands of fonts (paid options).
Proxima Nova by Mark Simonson. I got hooked back in 2009, very hard to find something that works so well across multiple mediums. I am a big fan of Futura, but it's not the best all around design. So Proxima fits into that happy middle ground of being a cool geometric design, but still very functional. It's not perfect, but it's perfect for me in the time being.
haha, so good.
This sucks, she was one of my biggest inspirations.
Thank you Nicholas for using our site!
Hello Christian, just so you know fonts dot com is owned by the same corporation who own myfonts, so the same policies will be used for the most part.
I am the owner of YouWorkForThem, which I founded 15 years ago as one of the first creative marketplaces. We work close with our foundrys and we pay them up to 70% in royalties. I'm a designer by trade and so are the majority of our team. We are not a corporation, with no shareholder agenda. If you ever have a question about buying and or licensing we are always happy (and quick) to help.
As Ethan from Fontspring suggested, support the foundry directly and or an independent vendor if you can. Most sites have beenbought out by corporations (Creative Market is owned by software giant Autodesk, TypeKit by another giant named Adobe). You will typically get more personal service and you will be supporting the designers and not corporate shareholders.
