Adobe ® Devanagari is a serif font style family. This typeface has four designs and was published by Adobe.

The Adobe Devanagari typefaces were commissioned from Tiro Typeworks and collaboratively designed by Tim Holloway, Fiona Ross and John Hudson, beginning in 2005. The types were officially launched in 2010. The style brief was to produce a typeface for contemporary company interactions in Hindi and other languages, to be readable both in print and on screen. Adobe Devanagari was developed to be extremely readable in a variety of situations including quite little sizes in spreadsheets and in continuous text setting, along with at display screen sizes, where the full character of the typeface reveals itself.
The building and construction of the letters is based on traditional penmanship but possesses less stroke contrast than numerous Devanagari types, in order to maintain strong, understandable types at smaller sized sizes. To attain a vibrant, fluid style the style features a rounded treatment of distinguishing terminals and stroke turnarounds, open counters that likewise aid legibility at smaller sized sizes, and delicately flaring strokes. Together, these information reveal an initial hand and provide a contemporary technique that is clean, clear and comfortable to check out whether in other words or long passages of text. This new approach to a conventional script is intended to counter the dominance of rigid, staccato-like impacts of straight verticals and horizontals in earlier types and many existing fonts.
OpenType Layout features in the fonts offer both automated and discretionary access to an extensive glyph set, making it possible for advanced typography. Many conjuncts chosen in classical literary texts and particularly in some North Indian languages are consisted of; these literary conjuncts may be substituted by specially designed alternative linear kinds and fitted half types. The length of the ikars-- ि and ी-- differs immediately according to adjacent letter or conjunct width. Regional versions of characters and numerals (e.g. Marathi types) are included as alternates. Careful attention has actually been provided to the placements of all vowel indications and modifiers. The font styles consist of both proportional and tabular characters in Indian and European designs. Comprehensive kerning covers a number of thousand possible mixes of half kinds and full types to prepare for approximate conjuncts in foreign loan words.
