News Gothic MT font family

Overview

Sans serif faces can get very boring and can be difficult to read. One of the primary reasons is that font designers cannot make many variations in the shape of a sans serif letter, particularly those like 'l', 'i' and 'o'. News Gothic MT, however, has a nice angularity that allows it to wear better than most, and you will find it a pleasant change from the other sans serif typefaces of this world. Originally designed in 1908, News Gothic MT preceded the more fiercely geometric forms of the twentieth century. This design, with its plainly stated, unselfconscious letterforms, was revived by Monotype in 1962. You'll find it useful as a text face, but it's quite nice for headlines and section headings as well.
