ABOUT







Red Hat Inc [Steve Matteson]

This web site describes itself as follows: On May 9, 2007, Red Hat announced the public release of these fonts under the trademark LIBERATION at the Red Hat Summit. There are three sets: Sans (a substitute for Arial, Albany, Helvetica, Nimbus Sans L, and Bitstream Vera Sans), Serif (a substitute for Times New Roman, Thorndale, Nimbus Roman, and Bitstream Vera Serif) and Mono (a substitute for Courier New, Cumberland, Courier, Nimbus Mono L, and Bitstream Vera Sans Mono). The fonts are now available for you to install.

At Fontspace, one can download these families by Red Hat Inc: Overpass (Delve Withrington), Liberation Serif, Liberation Sans, Liberation Mono. The Liberation fonts were made by Steve Matteson from 2007 until 2009 at Ascender. Liberation Sans is also available at Open Font Library. Overpass and Overpass Mono were created in 2011 by Dave Bailey and Delve Withrington. It is a free open source typeface family based on the U.S. interstate highway road signage type system. Google Fonts link. See also Transpass (2011-2019).

So What created a poster for Liberation Serif in 2014.

RedHat Display, Text and Mono (2021) are open source fonts that were originally commissioned by Paula Scher / Pentagram and designed by Jeremy Mickel / MCKL for the new Red Hat identity. Mickel writes: Red Hat is a fresh take on the geometric sans genre, taking inspiration from a range of American sans serifs including Tempo and Highway Gothic. The Display styles, made for headlines and big statements, are low contrast and spaced tightly, with a large x-height and open counters. The Text styles have a slightly smaller x-height and narrower width for better legibility, are spaced more generously, and have thinned joins for better performance at small sizes. In 2021 we added Light and Light Italic styles, and a Monospace family. Variable fonts with a weight axis are available. RedHat's official site.
