The Mayberry™ Pro Light Font is a part of an extensive family of 14 OpenType fonts from Ascender Corp. Mayberry was initially designed by Steve Matteson to emulate the technical behavior of a font family called Tiresias™ for use in set top TV devices and user interfaces. Mayberry Pro Light Font is a significant improvement in aesthetics and functionality over Tiresias. Mayberry Pro Light Font includes true italics and a wide range of weights to provide the highest quality and readability on low resolution devices, while also featuring a range of OpenType features that will appeal to creative professionals. Mayberry Pro Light Font is a slightly condensed humanist sans serif which allows for more readable text in a narrower column. Open counters and upright stress help keep the design of Mayberry Pro readable at low resolutions. A significant amount of care has been given to design subtleties allowing the design to function well at large sizes. The Mayberry Pro Light Font character set supports Central and Eastern European, Turkish and Baltic. Mayberry Pro Light Font also includes a slashed zero for use where absolute distinction between 'O' and zero is a concern. Also included are typographic features such as old style figures, fractions, superior and inferior numbers for use with applications that provide advanced OpenType typographic support. A set of closed captioning symbols and arrows add to the font's versatility in interface design.NOTE: An OpenType-savvy application such as Adobe Creative Suite or Quark XPress is required to access the OpenType typographic features.
