Karla is an open-source, grotesque sans-serif typeface designed by Jonathan Pinhorn. Karla isn’t perfect—the spacing is set a little wide and some of the kerning looks a little off, however, this font has tons of character and there really aren’t any other quirky grotesques like this that are available for free. Karla is available in two weights—normal and bold—each with matching italics.
Based on font usage data on Typewolf, as well as site submissions designers have been sending me lately, these are the 10 fonts that I predict will be hot in 2019. When you subscribe to my weekly type roundup newsletter, I’ll send you a free PDF with a list of my predictions.
