Minion, designed by Robert Slimbach in 1990, is a serif typeface composed in the classical tradition. Slimbach was inspired by the late Renaissance-era and depicted Minion as a timeless font. Minion is one of those typefaces that we have all seen, but rarely appreciate. With its many practical benefits and aesthetic applications—this font deserves some serious attention! It adapts well to many different platforms and is suitable for almost any use.
