Background

Fira Sans is a tidy, four weight family by Erik Spiekermann and Ralph Du Carrois — commissioned by Mozilla for their smartphone-optimized Firefox OS. The influential bones of Spiekermann’s FF Meta are more than evident in this slightly condensed, highly readable design. Give it try for yourself — the current version of this open source family can be downloaded from GitHub.
