Apple font

in General Discussion edited January 2014
What is the main font that Apple uses? And not the iPod font, the font they use with the iMac's and the iApps.

    You mean for their big titles on their web page, packaging, etc.? It's all Adobe Myriad (bold usually) or maybe a slight variant of it. The iPod uses the same font for its packaging.

    Nope BuonRotto is correct, it's "Myriad Apple".

    Lucida Grande is the standard system font for menus, dialogs and such. Myriad is for oversized titles. Lucida is not a very good title/header font (kind of "lanky" when it's too big) but it'S easily read at small sizes.

    Here's Myriad Pro. Look at the bold font, and Myriad Pro Black.

    This isn't Lucida Grande (who makes that particular variant?) but it's an example of a Lucida Sans Standard font. Grande has broader spaces and less variation in the strokes.

    At, the tabs are done to look like Lucida Grande. The headline for Office is Myriad. You can see that the font for the big "iPod + iTunes" in that section of Apple's site is also Myriad. The "i" is pretty unmistakable.
