Cambiano i caratteri…

Cambiano i tempi e cambiano i caratteri. Cosi’ la celebre “fonderia” Monotype ha rivisto e corretto uno dei caratteri di maggior successo di tutti i tempi, il Gill Sans, creato da Eric Gill nel 1928.

Il Nuovo carattere prende il nome di Gill Sans Nova. Una operazione coraggiosa di mix tra design del passato e esigenze future, Monotype del resto così descrive l’operazione:

“The reason we’re doing this is because Monotype needs to have both a foot in the past and a foot in the future,” says Steve Matteson, creative type director at Monotype. “We have this amazing legacy, represented by Eric Gill and other famous designers, who brought a rich tradition of type to our company. But we also need to focus on contemporary type designs for contemporary needs. With the Eric Gill Series, it was a unique opportunity to put both of those feet on the same page.”
