Last month the Adobe Type team released their first open source type family, Source Sans. To date, the fonts for Source Sans have been downloaded over 67,000 times from SourceForge. Today, the team is following up on the release with an open source monospaced type family adapted from Source Sans – appropriately named Source Code. Six weights of Source Code and source files can be download from the Open@Adobe portal on SourceForge and you can clone and fork the project on GitHub. The fonts are also available for web through Typekit, WebINK, and Google Web Fonts.
To learn more about the inspiration behind Source Code and how the design was adapted from Source Sans, refer to Paul Hunt’s Typblography post.
