About Minion 3 Subhead

Minion is a contemporary type family created by Robert Slimbach and released by Adobe Originals. Since its earliest release, Minion has proven to be a versatile typeface for text and display, used widely in books and in editorial design where readability and elegance are necessities.

With Minion 3, Slimbach had the opportunity to re-examine the Minion family and to extend it further, nearly doubling the number of Latin glyphs to cover African languages and Vietnamese, as well as full IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet). Slimbach has also extensively refined the Cyrillic and Greek scripts, and introduced Armenian script in addition.

Minion 3 is available in four weights and four optical sizes (Display, Caption, Subhead, and text), each with corresponding italics. Visit minion.typekit.com for a detailed exploration of the design history and technical considerations for this latest expansion on one of Adobe’s most beloved type families.

Adobe Originals logo

The Adobe Originals program started in 1989 as an in-house type foundry at Adobe, brought together to create original typefaces of exemplary design quality, technical fidelity, and aesthetic longevity.

Today the Type team’s mission is to conduct original research and development for type at Adobe, making sophisticated and even experimental typefaces that explore the possibilities of design and technology. Typefaces released as Adobe Originals — fully-featured families and smaller “Concept” projects alike — are the result of years of work and study, regarded as industry standards for the ambition and quality of their development.
