Description : free sans-serif font with round attributes
Quicksand is a display sans serif with rounded terminals.
The project was initiated by Andrew Paglinawan in 2008
using geometric shapes as a core foundation. It is designed
for display purposes but kept legible enough to use in small
sizes as well.
In 2016, in collaboration with Andrew, it was thoroughly revised
by Thomas Jockin to improve the quality.
This font is used by the chosen artwork proposal for Debian 10
(buster). I indend to package this so that SVG files that uses
this font can be rendered properly.
