Thai extension for FiraGO used in "HERE" maps

In 2016, the geo data provider »HERE« chose Fira Sans as their corporate typeface. Their need for a broader language coverage especially in map applications led them to commission bBox Type GmbH with a global script extension.

I had the honor to extend the script coverage to Thai with consultaions by Ben Mitchell.

FiraGO now supports Arabic, Devanagari, Georgian, Hebrew and Thai. With this script support, FiraGO catches up with other global Open Source typefaces such as Noto and IBM Plex.

FiraGO is licenced under OFL (Open Font Licence)
