Century Gothic

Century Gothic

Century Gothic is one of my favorite typefaces. I’ve used it for projects and incorporated it into a logo I designed for a friend’s photography business. It’s also my default Outlook font choice…is that surprising?

Considered a geometric typeface, this serif-less font was designed and distributed in 1991 by the Monotype Corporation. I was surprised to learn that Century Gothic is actually widely used in various media. It’s used on the credits for the TV show House; it’s also the main font of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and was the official font for the medallions of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. Bands Weezer and Franz Ferdinand also use Century Gothic in their logos.
