It’s been quite a while since I’ve done one of these posts – actually, five years – lol – but no reason not to pick an old habit back up! 🙂
Montserrat is a sans serif font created by Julieta Ulanovsky inspired by the street signs of the Montserrat neighborhood of Buenos Aires. It is the font we have used in Fedora for the Fedora Editions logos:
It is also used as the official headline / titling font for Fedora project print materials. Packaging this font is of particular important to Fedora, since we have started using it as an official font in our design materials. It would be lovely to be able to install it via our software install tools rather than having designers have to download and install it manually.
Montserrat is licensed under the Open Font License.
