Malte Bentzen – Modern Gothic. Diploma Project by Malte Bentzen
with François Rappo
From the dawn of the American gothic typefaces comes a new digital font family. Inspired by a type-specimen dated around 1890 from Chicago based foundry Barnhart Brothers & Spindler, a new digital version is created of the forgotten typeface Modern Gothic. The new version takes account the spirit and charm of the original source yet offers a new functional interpretation ready for a universal usage at different sizes. Modern Gothic comes in 5 weights, with corresponding italics.
