Font Designer – Gary Gillot

Designer Gary Gillot created the font Carousel™ in 1966.
Carousel is a fat faces display type. Fat faces were offshoots of the modern, or Didone, typefaces that were de rigueur during the early 1800s. These fat faces were among the first typefaces to be used solely for advertising purposes. Naturally, they were always used in larger point sizes, in display functions.
