Microsoft Wants You to Vote For Office's New Default Font

It's up to us.

In case you missed it: Microsoft has officially retired Calibri from being the software's default font.  It's the end of an era. After 14 years, the tech company is giving up the font that has been a part of many's school reports, work documents, and more.

"A default font is often the first impression we make; it’s the visual identity we present to other people via our resumes, documents, or emails," Microsoft explained in a statement. "And just as people and the world around us age and grow, so too should our modes of expression."

There's no time to be sad, however. Microsoft is giving us the option to choose the next font and, no, Times New Roman isn't one of the choices. The options are five all-original fonts: Bierstadt, Grandview, Seaford, Skeena, and Tenorite.

All you have to do is head to Microsoft's site. There you can check out the new fonts, and join in on the conversation on social media.


So, choose well because Microsoft says "they communicate a distinct personality in their own quiet way—a personality that by extension becomes our personality as well."
