Work Sans is a free, open-source typeface designed by Australian type designer Wei Huang. It was commissioned by Google Fonts and released in 2015. The font family is available in an impressive nine weights, however, there are currently no italic styles available which makes it more suitable as a display face rather than a text face. This style of sans-serif influenced by early grotesques is quite popular at the moment so I’m predicting that we’ll start to see Work Sans used all over the web in the coming months.
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.
