Description

Roboto has a dual nature. It has a mechanical skeleton and the forms are largely geometric. At the same time, the font features friendly and open curves. While some grotesks distort their letterforms to force a rigid rhythm, Roboto doesn’t compromise, allowing letters to be settled into their natural width. This makes for a more natural reading rhythm more commonly found in humanist and serif types.

This is the normal family, which can be used alongside the Roboto Condensed family and the Roboto Slab family.

Reviews

If you really have to use Roboto, you’d better be choosing styles from the middle of its weight range — where the mentioned problems are not that visible. The mistakes interfere with the typeface’s neutrality, which is an important thing in UI. If possible, we recommend using something else.
