Public Sans

Public Sans is an open-source sans-serif typeface designed by the United States Web Design System, a federal government organization. The design is based off Libre Franklin but features numerous modifications to make it excel in user interface applications. The family is available in nine weights with matching italics, as well as a variable font version.
