Mozilla Releases New Firefox OS Typeface ‘Fira Sans’, Free For Download

Mozilla has released a typeface for its Firefox OS, ‘Fira Sans’.

Designed by German typographer Erik Spiekermann, the open-source typeface aims to integrate with the style of the OS and “cover the legibility needs for a large range of handsets varying in screen quality and rendering,” according to Mozilla.

When using Fira Sans, designers are advised to avoid micro-font sizes that fall below Mozilla’s style guidelines.
