Metrophobic is a sans serif face with a semi geometric feel. It is designed to be legible at small text sizes but also have enough character to be used as an interesting display face for headers and headlines. It can also be used for text bodies.
The Metrophobic project was commissioned by Google from Vernon Adams , an English type designer who lived in San Clemente, Los Angeles, USA. To contribute, see github.com/googlefonts/MetrophobicFont
Updated June 2019 to v3.100: Redrawn and respaced to improve the design quality.
Vernon practiced typeface design from 2007 to 2014. A lifelong artist, during this time he eagerly explored designing type for the cloud-based era. His work spans all genres, from lively script faces to workhorse text families and operating system UI. Vernon graduated with an MA in Typeface Design from the University of Reading and lives in California. His designs are mostly published as open source Google Fonts and his favorite projects include Oxygen Mono, Monda, and Bowlby One. Follow his story at www.sansoxygen.com .
