Finding Microsoft’s Next Default Font

The Microsoft Design Team:

Calibri has been the default font for all things Microsoft since 2007, when it stepped in to replace Times New Roman across Microsoft Office. It has served us all well, but we believe it’s time to evolve. To help us set a new direction, we’ve commissioned five original, custom fonts to eventually replace Calibri as the default. We’re excited to share these brand-new fonts with you today and would love your input. Head over to social and tell us your favorite.

Asking users for input on which font should be their next default is perhaps the most Microsoftian thing in recent memory.
