Font Designer – Don Handel

The Handel Gothic™ typeface has been a mainstay of graphic communication for over 40 years – all the while looking as current as today and as forward as tomorrow. Designed by Don Handel in the mid-1960s, Handel Gothic was an instant success with the graphic design community. Typographic lore has it that Handel went on to work for Saul Bass, who selected Handel Gothic for his new wordmark for United Airlines in the early 70s.
