INTERSTATE

Interstate is our corporate typeface. It’s part of a large and versatile type family, which allows us to speak in many voices—from big and bold to calm and confident.

Interstate looks best in print and when used for big headlines. We use it for all printed material, like collateral and stationery; for advertising, like printed ads and web banners; and anywhere text is embedded in an image, like diagrams and videos.

Interstate is a commercial typeface, and you must buy a license to use it.

OVERPASS

Overpass is an open-licensed alternative to Interstate that is specifically for use on-screen and in our software. Like Interstate, Overpass is based on the FHWA (Federal Highway Administration) series of fonts, which has been used for US Highway signage since 1945.

Overpass can be used in a lot of the same ways as Interstate. We use Overpass for all web text, editable presentations, and product interfaces.

Liberation is metrically equivalent to the default fonts on non-Linux platforms. That means there are fewer issues with font conflicts and formatting when a document moves between platforms.

Use Liberation Sans for live, editable documents that will be shared outside of Red Hat.
