Gill Sans

Gill Sans

This quintessentially English font was produced by Monotype Corporation and designed by Eric Gill in 1928. Gill worked with Edward Johnston, designer of the Johnston Font which was used for the London Underground and is often confused for Gill Sans.

You may recognise Gill Sans from the BBC logo where it started being used in 1997. Other companies adopting the font include Benetton, Tommy Hilfiger and Saab.

Today over two dozen Gill Sans variations are available and the font has achieved mainstream use thanks to its inclusion in Mac OS X and Microsoft Office.

Fonts play a huge role in determining the look of a logo, document or website. At FX-PM we can help you make the right choice for all of your graphic design needs.
