Droid Sans is a human­ist sans serif font. Ascen­der describes it as hav­ing “an upright stress, open forms and a neu­tral, yet friendly appear­ance.” Its open aper­a­tures, slightly tapered spurs, and a double-decker g all make Droid Sans feel slightly more hand-written than man­u­fac­tured. It has a slightly nar­row bowl and an x-height that’s only a hair shorter than Verdana’s. Droid Sans also has a gen­er­ous let­ter spac­ing, which makes it eas­ier to read at small sizes, but can make the let­ters feel a lit­tle “loose” when used for headlines.

Droid Sans comes in reg­u­lar and bold. It is avail­able for free down­load at fontsquirrel.com. It is also avail­able for font-linking at google web­fonts.
