I really like this font.
I don’t expect many people to have it installed, but I think it’d be a good default browser font (sans-serif, of course) alongside Fira Sans.
The numbers are very nice, and it feels fairly casual / hand-written. Overall, it’s pretty similar to Fira Sans, leaning towards -apple-system / San Francisco (simpler forms, less curling).
I wish they had a monospaced version.
I still slightly prefer Fira Sans, but it’s certainly close. It’s seems less distinct than Fira, so I think it’d go better in a business app / internal tool where people prefer no “pizazz”.
What’s the word from Office Space? Flair?
Fira has got slightly more flair. But Goldman Sans is really good.
It’s like there’s a spectrum you can draw through sans-serif fonts.
- Fantasque (very “characteristic”)
- The Sans
- Fira / Meta
- Lucida Grande
- Goldman Sans
- San Francisco / -apple-system
- Segoe UI
- Helvetica (very “plain”)
That’s how it seems to me. So for a blog, 3 is about right.
