Dosis Font

by Edgar Tolentino, Pablo Impallari, Igino Marini

Current Status

  • Dosis-VF is a remastered variable font version.
  • Version 1.007 is the latest stable version.
  • Version 2.xxx is an ongoing migration to Glyphs and Vietnamese extension, but is still a work in progress.

Description

Dosis is a very simple, rounded, sans serif family. The lighter weights are minimalist. The bolder weights have more personality. The medium weight is nice and balanced. The overall result is a family that's clean and modern, and can express a wide range of voices & feelings. It's also full of alternate glyphs so you can play arround and have fun.

It comes in 7 weights: ExtraLight, Light, Regular, Medium, Semibold, Bold & ExtraBold

Variable Font

In 2018 Dosis was remastered as a variable font. Dosis-VF

Building

Fonts are built automatically by GitHub Actions - take a look in the "Actions" tab for the latest build.

If you particularly want to build fonts manually on your own computer, you will need to install the yq utility. On OS X with Homebrew, type brew install yq; on Linux, try snap install yq; if all else fails, try the instructions on the linked page.

Then:

  • make build will produce font files.
  • make test will run FontBakery's quality assurance tests.
  • make proof will generate HTML proof files.
