    (sommelier voice) "Ah yes, quite nice, I'm getting notes of Clarendon, with a hint of Droid Serif..."

    It would be sweet if this showed up on Google Fonts at some point.

    The typeface comes with an almost upright italic.

    I love how Google has been taking design seriously lately.

      Agreed. They've been doing a good job. I remember Doug Bowman left in disgust a few years ago because he couldn't get anything done over there (http://stopdesign.com/archive/2009/03/20/goodbye-google.html). It sounded like the engineering mindset—quantifying everything, prioritizing data over instinct—nullified whatever attempt at better design they'd made by hiring him, and their apps really showed it.

      I don't know how design at Google works now, but I hope they're not still bickering over shades of blue.

        I think they've really pulled it together in recent times, with the introduction and implementation of material design. I don't agree with material design implemented by third-parties, I think it's Google's thing and it should only be Google's thing. I believe it is probably the best design-related decision they could've possibly made.

        I only hope that some of their more talented designers and UX people turn to YouTube. That site is a total pain in the ass to use.

    Really nice. Reminds me of some of the reasons I love Arbutus Slab.

    Pretty good in general. I'm quite liking the (near-) upright italics. Not so sure about these shoulders, though: Shoulders
