Creating derivative fonts

Inter is open source which means you can make your own versions with your own changes. However when doing so, please read LICENSE.txt carefully. It is a standard SIL Open Font License 1.1:

The goals of the Open Font License (OFL) are to stimulate worldwide development of collaborative font projects, to support the font creation efforts of academic and linguistic communities, and to provide a free and open framework in which fonts may be shared and improved in partnership with others.

The OFL allows the licensed fonts to be used, studied, modified and redistributed freely as long as they are not sold by themselves. The fonts, including any derivative works, can be bundled, embedded, redistributed and/or sold with any software provided that any reserved names are not used by derivative works. The fonts and derivatives, however, cannot be released under any other type of license. The requirement for fonts to remain under this license does not apply to any document created using the fonts or their derivatives.

While you are allowed to use Inter commercially, i.e. bundled with product or service which makes you money, you are NOT allowed to sell Inter itself or derivatives of Inter. If you would like to do so, please reach out and we can talk about it.

This section discusses some of the design choices made for Inter.

Inter can be classified as a geometric neo-grotesque, similar in style to Roboto, Apple San Francisco, Akkurat, Asap, Lucida Grande and more. Some trade-offs were made in order to make this typeface work really well at small sizes:

  • Early versions of Inter was not suitable for very large sizes because of some small-scale glyph optimizations (like "pits" and "traps") that help rasterization at small sizes but stand out and interfere at large sizes. However today Inter works well at large sizes and a Display subfamily is in the works for really large "display" sizes.

  • Rasterized at sizes below 12px, some stems—like the horizontal center of "E", "F", or vertical center of "m"—are drawn with two semi-opaque pixels instead of one solid. This is because we "prioritize" (optimize for) higher-density rasterizations. If we move these stems to an off-center position—so that they can be drawn sharply at e.g. 11px—text will be less legible at higher resolutions.

Inter is a variable font and is in addition also distributed as a set of traditional distinct font files in the following styles:

Roman (upright) name Italic name Weight
Thin Thin Italic 100
Extra Light Extra Light Italic 200
Light Light Italic 300
Regular Italic 400
Medium Medium Italic 500
Semi Bold Semi Bold Italic 600
