VJTimes was the old type used for text, a custom (increased x-height) version of the Linotype Times
As based on Linotype Times, VJTimes kept a lot of the inconsistencies and strange decisions accross the family...
... which were obvious things to improve
Contrast was far too high in certain parts of the letters for a text face. It was also a big problem in rotogravure printing
Also considering the family, the semibold was made lighter to better mark the transitions and allow for finer typography
Caps had their weight and proportions balanced to the lowercase – and gained a more contemporary look
Distinct sets of diacritics were made for upper and lowercase – they were also positioned correctly
Screen optmization (hinting) between the old VJTimes (first line of every group) and Veja Serif (second line)
