Merriweather Sans

Merriweather Sans is the companion to Merriweather. It comes in 4 weights designed specially for screens. The classic structure provides a notable difference from other Google Fonts. Merriweather Sans was developed using TTFA rapid test design solutions. As a result, Merriweather Sans was designed to ensure excellent Windows rendering.

Gelasio is designed to be metrics compatible with Georgia. Gelasio is a "Reale" or Transitional design with many style cues coming from the period immediately after the Romain du Roi type was introduced. Despite sharing common letter widths the texture and feeling of the two typefaces are different. Georgia is warmer and friendlier while Gelasio is cooler and more formal.

Pinyon Script

Pinyon Script is a romantic round hand style font offering confident swashes in its capitals. These swashes somehow give the type a feeling suggestive of the American West giving it a friendly accessble feeling. Pinyon Script was optimized to work in windows based web browsers. Pinyon Script's lovely small details, high stroke contrast and slanted shapes make it best suited for use at larger sizes.

Armata is a low contrast sans serif text face. In Aramata offers the familiar aesthetic steadiness and strength we usually want from a sans design. Armata also offers with innovative and delicate gestures that serve to give it a distinct voice. Armata can be used in a wide range of sizes. This site is set in Armata.

Courgette is a brushy medium to low contrast italic script. This kind of style traditionally used for display and unsuprisingly Courgette works well in display. However Courgette's is more versitile than that. Its carefully made forms mean that it also works well in smaller sizes and even in massed text. The Sorkin Type Logo is composed from glyphs in Courgette.

Fruktur initially appears to be a playful and powerful black letter type with a warm friendly feeling. However its construction is closer to that of an upright italic. Fruktur offers some of the feeling of a black letter but with higher legibility and greater utility than is typical of black letter type. Fruktur will be most useful from medium to large sizes.

Donegal is a distinctive text typeface designed to be highly legible when reading in web browsers. In larger sizes the details of Donegal's design emerge. Donegal was optimized to work in windows based web browsers.

Sorkin Type on Google Fonts

Many of the fonts we made for Google are the result of working with a collaborating designer. After these fonts were designed Sorkin Type tested, optimized and mastered them to Google internal web font standards. Oswald was developed without Sorkin Type but will be released as a commercial Sorkin Type font family.
