Figtree is a free sans-serif font characterized by its simplicity and distinctive geometric shapes. The author of this typeface, Erik D. Kennedy, describes it as a friendly font, which is minimalist but not stiff, casual but not silly. A distinctive aspect of the font’s design is its elevated “x-height,” which has been carefully crafted to maximize text readability. This feature makes it incredibly versatile and suitable for a wide range of applications.
The Figtree typeface family comprises 7 weight variants, ranging from 300 to 900. Additionally, the typeface boasts an extensive repertoire of over 400 glyphs, including fractions and tabular numbers. Its versatility is further reflected in its support for a total of 280 different languages.
What adds further value to Figtree is its distribution under the SIL Open Font License. This license allows anyone to use and modify the typeface for any purpose, whether it’s personal, commercial, or educational.Download font
