Red Hat is a family of typefaces produced in 2 optical sizes and this monospace style, each with a range of weights and with italics. The fonts were originally commissioned by Paula Scher at Pentagram, and designed by Jeremy Mickel at MCKL for a new Red Hat brand identity.
The Red Hat typefaces are a fresh take on the geometric sans genre, taking inspiration from a range of American sans serifs including Tempo and Highway Gothic. The Display styles are low contrast and spaced tightly, with a large x-height and open counters. The Text styles have a slightly smaller x-height and narrower width for better legibility, are spaced more generously, and have thinned joins for better performance at small sizes. The two families can be used together seamlessly at a range of sizes.
