Free Download The Complete Gotham Font Family

Gotham Font is a geometric sans-serif typeface family designed by American type designer Tobias Frere-Jones with Jesse Ragan and published in 2000. The Gotham lettering was inspired by examples of architectural signs from the mid-20th century. Gotham has a relatively roomy layout with a reasonably high x-height and wide openings.
Since its inception, Gotham has been highly visible due to its appearance in many notable locations. This has included Barack Obama's presidential campaign in 2008, the Michigan State University branding, and the 2016 federal election campaign of the Australian Labor Party. The fountain has also been used in the cornerstone of the One World Trade Center in New York. It is also the font currently used on MPAA title cards for movie trailers in the US.
Developed for professional use, Gotham is an extremely large family, with four widths, eight weights, and separate layouts for on-screen display and a rounded version. It is published by Hoefler & Co., the company of former Frere-Jones business partner Jonathan Hoefler. The font is currently used in the Discovery, Inc., Taco Bell, and Golf Galaxy logos.

Creation and style

The Gotham typeface was initially commissioned by GQ magazine, whose editors wanted to show a sans-serif with a "geometric structure" that would look "masculine, new and fresh" for their magazine. GQ agreed that they needed something "that was very cool and very established to have a kind of believable voice," according to Hoefler.
Frere-Jones' inspiration for the typeface came from the time he spent walking block by block through Manhattan with a camera to find source material and based the font on the letters seen in older buildings, especially the sign in the facade of Eighth Avenue of the Port Authority Bus Terminal. "I suppose there is a hidden personal agenda in design," Frere-Jones said, "to preserve those old New York pieces that could be erased before being appreciated. Having grown up here, I always liked 'old New York and its letters ".
The letters that inspired this typeface originated in the sans-serif style of the 1920s era like Futura, where "type, like architecture, like the organization of society itself, had to be reduced to its elements Naked and efficient essentials, get rid of the undesirable, local or ethnic elements. " This theme was found frequently in the Depression-era type in both North America and Europe, particularly Germany. Frere-Jones characterizes this simplification of type as "not the typeface a type designer would make. It's the typeface an engineer would make. It was born out of type design in some other world and has a very different flavor." after that. "Paul Shaw commented that the letter shapes on which Gotham was based" were geometric but didn't look like Futura. Their widths were more uniform and less classical, the bowls were larger. "
Reviews of Gotham focus on its identity as something American and specific to New York City. According to David Dunlap of The New York Times, Gotham "deliberately evokes the nonsensical and nonsensical architectural lettering that dominated [New York's] urban landscape from the 1930s to the 1960s." Newsweek's Andrew Romano agrees. "Unlike other sans serif typefaces, it's not German, it's not French, it's not Swiss," he said. "It's very American.
According to Frere-Jones, Gotham would not have happened without the GQ commission. "The humanist and the geometric ... had already been carefully delineated and developed by previous designers. I didn't think anything new could have been found there, but luckily for me (and the client), I was wrong.
