Type Gallery – Morris Sans
Font Designer: Dan Reynolds, 2006
Finally, Bank Gothic with lowercase! Morris Sans® is a revised and extended version of Bank Gothic, the ever-popular typeface created by Morris Fuller Benton in 1930. Building onto the initial squared capitals design, Dan Reynolds added an original lowercase, as well as several figure options:
1. tabular and proportional lining figures,
2. tabular and proportional old style figures,
3. and small cap figures, too!
Small caps, which have become an iconic element over time, are also accessible in each of the family’s fonts as an OpenType feature.
Morris Sans is a streamlined face. Its appearance is best suited for headlines, advertising, posters, expressive signage (especially on storefronts), and corporate identity work.
