Quick Hit: Public Sans, A Free Font That’s Great for Reporting

Steven NgDaily Debug BlogLeave a Comment

The United States Web Design System released a free font called Public Sans. It’s available in multiple weights, but it has a few things going for it that make it a solid choice :

  • It’s a very nice sans serif font that is very legible
  • It has tabular figures, which are great for displaying numbers in charts and tables
  • It’s free and open source – the source is on Github, and you can report bugs and issues with the font (and from the looks of it, you’ll even get a prompt response)
  • With exception of the capital ‘O’ and zero ‘0’, I don’t believe that there are any visually ambiguous characters

If you’re having trouble finding a good font for your reporting system, give Public Sans a shot.
