As the name hints at, Halyard Micro was developed specifically for small and tiny sizes, think map labels, directories, footnotes, nutrition facts, etc. It’s distinguished from Halyard Text and Halyard Display by wider proportions, larger apertures, and a more open spacing.
NYC-based Reflexions realized that the special features like sharply tapered joints and ink traps can also be utilized for visual effect. Their portfolio website exclusively uses the subfamily with the chiseled look, exemplifying that Halyard Micro cuts a fine figure when used large, too. The font family by Darden Studio serves in several of its eight weights, for everything from headings and navigational items to body copy.
