Public Sans Typeface


Public Sans is a sans serif typeface based on Libre Franklin. Public Sans has many similarities with its parent, but differs enough in its particulars that its effect is distinct. Public Sans comes with 18 fonts, including weights from Thin to Black and matched Italics, contains full set of glyphs.

Overall, Public Sans differs from Libre Franklin in its focus on longform reading and neutral UI applicability. It takes inspiration from neutral sans faces of the 20th century, as well as the orignal Franklins of the 19th, resulting in something of a mongrel face that retains its American origin. Public Sans is designed to be a progressive enhancement webfont, and to work well with Apple and Google system fonts as the base in its font stack.
