Why the US Government Just Made Its Own Font

While most of the changes won’t be terribly interesting to anyone who doesn’t build websites for a living, one big change caught our eye: the federal government has created its own bespoke typeface for the project, fittingly named Public Sans.

Coolest thing I have seen about the government in quite some time.

Fortunately, the GSA is releasing Public Sans under the SIL Open Font License, so designers working on projects outside of the federal government will be able to freely utilize the new typeface.

I actually used to run a call center program for the General Services Administration (GSA).

AeroPress Love

Shawn Blanc details why the AeroPress is the coffee brewing system he utilizes most often.
