Metric

Metric is a geometric humanist sans-serif designed in 2011 by Kris Sowersby of Klim Type Foundry. The skeleton of Metric shares a similar structure to Sowersby’s Calibre but features strokes that terminate vertically rather than horizontally on letters such as the a, e and s. The family is available in seven weights with matching italics.
