The Metropolis Typeface

The Vision

To create a modern, geometric typeface. Open sourced, and openly available. Influenced by other popular geometric, minimalist sans-serif typefaces of the new millenium. Designed for optimal readability at small point sizes while beautiful at large point sizes.

December 2017 update

Currently working on greatly improving spacing and kerning of the base typeface. Once this is done, work on other variations (e.g. rounded or slab) can begin in earnest.
