Clearface Gothic – Font of the Week

Type Gallery – Clearface Gothic

Font Designer: Morris Fuller Benton, 1910/Linotype Design Studion, 1984
Clearface Gothic™ first appeared in 1910, designed by Morris Fuller Benton, the world-famously prolific typeface artist. In addition to Clearface Gothic, Benton also designed classics like Franklin Gothic, Century™ Expanded, and many other types. Clearface Gothic is a sans serif face with light forms displaying the Zeitgeist of the turn of the 20th century. Distinguishing characteristics are the open forms of the “a” and “c,” the arched “k,” and the upward-tilting horizontal stroke of the “e.” The relatively narrow typeface, with its open inner white spaces, is extremely legible even in small point sizes. There is no accompanying italic.
This digital version of Clearface Gothic was made in 1984 by the Linotype Design Studio.
