Titling Gothic type specimen

Typeface Review

Titling Gothic

Reviewed by Mark Simonson on July 11, 2007

According to the Font Bureau’s promotional copy, Titling Gothic was inspired by Railroad Gothic.

To me it feels a more like old standbys Univers and Helvetica, but with the panache of custom-lettered advertising headlines from the fifties and sixties. The immense range of styles offered (seven weights and seven widths) makes this a really flexible sans serif family. The only down side: no italics.

Mark Simonson of Saint Paul, Minnesota is a former art director and graphic designer who now makes his living designing typefaces — several of which are Typographica selections.

    The varietals are out of control useful. A wonderfully expansive creation.
