ABOUT







Canonical Design [Dalton Maag]

Design team that is related to Ubuntu. In 2010, they cooperated with the type design team of Dalton Maag to bring us free fonts for Ubuntu (called Ubuntu). Download the fonts: Ubuntu-Bold, Ubuntu-BoldItalic, Ubuntu-Italic, Ubuntu-Regular. Google Directory link for Ubuntu Mono (2010: free) and for Ubuntu Condensed. Announcement pages. The initial package contains Latin A+B Ext, Greek Polytonic and Cyrillic Extended, but lots of extensions are expected over the next few years.

Andrew Fitzsimon of Canonical Ltd created the font used in the logo of Ubuntu called Ubuntu-Title in 2005.

The package description reads: The Ubuntu Font Family are a set of matching new libre/open fonts in development during 2010-2011. The development is being funded by Canonical Ltd on behalf the wider Free Software community and the Ubuntu project. The technical font design work and implementation is being undertaken by Dalton Maag. Both the final font Truetype/OpenType files and the design files used to produce the font family are distributed under an open licence and you are expressly encouraged to experiment, modify, share and improve. Ralf Herrmann likes the font family but recalls that other typographers find Ubuntu too close to DTL Prokyon.
