In the 1990s Adobe’s MultipleMaster technology introduced interpolation into font editing programs. Though the obvious use of interpolation was to create additional weights for a font, interpolation could also be used to crossbreed two completely different typefaces. BetterIngriana is the result of such crossbreeding, the offspring of two very different parents. BetterTypeRight has little contrast and large, round serifs while Ingriana is a relaxed, informal typeface. BetterIngriana was constructed in 1995-6; updates in 2012 and 2020 cleaned up many of the remaining oddities that resulted when parts of the parent fonts clashed. The family retains some peculiarities from the method of its construction but is highly readable as text.
The BetterIngriana family has six styles: regular, semibold, bold, italic, and semibold italic and bold italic.
