About This Font

The Gill Sans font is a humanist sans serif typeface because of its convenient readability quality. It goes with both titles and body texts as well. This font was designed by a well-known artist and designer Arthur Eric Rowton Gill and released by the British branch called Monotype, in 1928. Gill was an English sculptor, type designer, and painter.

Stanely Morison (an influential Monotype executive), the friend of Eric Gill, commissioned him to design this font for the banner of the American company Monotype. Their aim was to compete with the German sans-serif fonts that existed in 1920.

Gill’s goal was to design a typeface that is so modern yet classical at the same time. The font, he thought, should be used not just as a display font, but also as body text. The base font of Gill Sans was Underground Alphabet by Edward Johnston from 1916.

Finally, when the font was released, A year later, it became an immediate success by becoming the typeface of the London and North Eastern Railways. Once the railway companies were nationalized in 1948, British Railways also chose Gill Sans as the typeface on their signs, posters, engine plates, and timetables.

Afterward, there have been many changes to this font. The designers added different styles, weights, and variants to the font to make it more user-friendly. Gill Sans font currently has 15 different typefaces.
