‘Oxygen Font’ is a project to design a desktop/gui font
for integrated use with the KDE desktop. The design is
based on interpolations between ‘Muli’ and ‘FontOne’
that have been further shaped to reach a clear, legible
font to use within the KDE gui.
The basic concept for ‘Oxygen Font’ was to design a clear,
legible, sans serif, that would be rendered with Freetype
on Linux-based devices. The idea was to not quite follow
a ‘purist’ line of sans serif typeface formulae, but to
allow some juxtapositioning of font forms to give
familiarity but also a sense of newness. A version of the
font is also under development that is aimed to be a
branding typeface for the desktop.
