ABOUT







Wei Huang

Australian type designer. Designer of the free sans typeface family Work Sans (2015), which is also available via Google Fonts. Wei writes: Work Sans is a typeface family based loosely on early Grotesques, such as those by Stephenson Blake, Miller & Richard and Bauerschen Giesserei. The regular weight and others in the middle range are optimized for on-screen text usage at medium-sizes (14px-48px) and can also be used in print design.

In 2018, Work Sans was forked into Elaine Sans. In 2020, it spawned the custom typeface Prodigy Sans done for Prodigy Education Inc.

In 2021, Lucas Sharp and My-Lan Thuong, assisted by Wei Huang and Marc Rouault, designed Salter. Salter Roman is based on calligraphic book jackets by Georg(e) Salter from 1941, and Salter Italic is inspired by two of Oscar Ogg's book jacket alphabets from 1942.

In 2021, Erin McLaughlin and Wei Huang developed the traditional workhorse sans serif typeface Tenorite for Microsoft for use as one of the default fonts in Office apps and Microsoft 365 products. Elements such as large dots, accents, and punctuation make Tenorite comfortable to read at small sizes on screen.
