About The Font
Lucida can be described as an extended set of similar typefaces created by Charles Bigelow and Kris Holmes and made available from 1984 and from 1984 onwards. The typeface family is designed to be highly usable when printed at a smaller sizes or on displays of low resolution, thus the reason for its name. derived from the Latin word lucid (clear or simple to comprehend). It is a sans-serif font.
There are numerous variations of Lucida that include serif (Fax, Bright) and serifs that are not (Sans, Sans Unicode, Grande, Sans Typewriter) and scripts (Blackletter, Calligraphy, Handwriting). A lot of them are available with other programs, including Microsoft Office.
The Lucida fonts feature a wide height x (tall lower-case characters) with wide apertures as well as very wide-spaced letters, typical features of fonts created for readability within body texts. Capital letters were created to be a bit small and narrow in order to let the all-caps acronyms blend. Bigelow has stated in an interview that the fonts were created using hand-drawn bitmaps in order to discover what components of letters had to appear clear on a bitmap before drawing outlines to be rendered as crisp bitmaps. The fonts contain ligatures, but they’re not required for text, making them suitable to use in simple typesetting systems. The x-heights of the fonts are identical between fonts. Hinting was employed to enable an onscreen display.
Lucida Console font is stylish and attractive for both text and designing. The font has no usage restrictions, so you can use it wherever you like without any license or permission.
It was used mainly for printing purposes in the early days of the font. This font is still used in printing media today, and it has a unique look.
