What is the Open Serif font?

OPEN SERIF – answering the question “what font pairs well with Open Sans?”. Designed by Steve Matteson for extraordinary legibility and comfortable reading on screen and in print.
Open Interpretation: Not quite Veronese – not quite Egyptian. A dash of panache in an otherwise sturdy serif typeface. Open Serif is an elegant text and display typeface family. More…
Open Interiors: Visually open and legible at text sizes just like its cousin Open Sans. Open Serif reads smoothly but has an energetic texture. The chancery style italic contrasts nicely to the roman in a full bodied nod to Italian Renaissance forms.
Open Type: Open Serif is full of OpenType features including Small Capitals for the Roman, Italic Swash Capitals and Old Style Figures for both.
Open Translation: Supporting all the languages available in Open Sans, Open Serif completes the translation capabilities of international companies. Extended text is more pleasant to read in a serif typeface so go global with a unified typeface family!
Open Face: Open Serif Titling is an elegant companion to round out the family. These ‘open-face’ capital letters are ideal for initial letters, mastheads, titles and decoration.
