Oswald is a sans-serif typeface designed by Vernon Adams in 2011 and released by Google Fonts. It has a tall x-height and wide proportions, making it a great choice for readability. Its design is largely based on the classic grotesque typefaces, such as Akzidenz Grotesk and Franklin Gothic, but with a modern twist. Oswald’s letterforms are characterized by slightly rounded corners, giving it a friendly, approachable feel. It has a strong, bold presence, yet still manages to remain legible even at small sizes.
Oswald is a versatile font that works well in a variety of contexts. It is suitable for both digital and print projects, and can be used for headlines, body text, and even logos. Its strong character makes it a great choice for websites in the tech, finance, and business industries. It also works well for editorial and lifestyle projects. In a few words, Oswald is bold, approachable, and timeless.
