To celebrate "25 years of original type," Adobe is offering its 100th typeface - Source Serif - for free.
Adobe announced the celebration on its official Typekit blog, promising perspectives and stories from members of the original Originals team including Sumner Stone, Carol Twombly, Robert Slimbach, and others. These stories would be part of a new Originals series.
Designed by Frank Grießhammer, Source Serif was designed as a partner font for Source Sans. The goal, as with many typefaces, was to make it readable and suitable for print or digital. To accomplish this, Grießhammer - along with principal type designer Robert Slimbach - simplified the letter forms, striving for "eminently readable" letter forms.
As its name might imply, Source Serif is an open-source typeface. It is available for all Typekit plans (including free ones), and can also be found on Github.
