A geometric sans-serif typeface that celebrates a special style of underline that is integrated into the letterforms found in the Montserrat neighborhood of Buenos Aires. Montserrat has subtle optical adjustments, which resulted in a sans serif family with multiple versions and multiple possibilities, both in the editorial and corporate realm.
Julieta Ulanovsky began this project in 2010 while a post-graduate student of typeface design at the FADU, University of Buenos Aires. She launched it as a Kickstarter project in 2011 in order to complete the first public release and share it with the world through Google Fonts.
The Montserrat Project began with the idea to rescue what is in Montserrat and set it free under a libre license, the SIL Open Font License. It comes in 17 weights, including Thin, Light, Regular, Medium, Bold, and Black weights. It also includes condensed styles in Light, Regular, Semi-Bold, Bold, and Extra-Bold.
