Open Source Font From Big Blue – IBM Plex

Open source font IBM Plex

I heard about this new open source font in my Twitter feed, and decided to go "whole hog," using it here on the site.

I was reading my Twitter feed last week and learned of IBM recently releasing a font as open source. You can read more at OMG Ubuntu if you're interested. It sounds like a combination of wanting a design change (a font that reflected IBM itself somehow) across their product line, and IBM no longer needing to license Helvetica from a company called Monotype.

I liked it, but learned of it on a road trip from Maine to Florida. I had to wait until I got to a place where I could work. Once there, I implemented it on FossFolks.

What do you think?
