The condensed, elongated Directors Gothic, a revival from the 1938 original, is a new favorite. Here’s a bit about its history:
Handcrafted by Lettering Inc as part of its core library of typefaces in the 1930s, Directors Gothic was dramatically expanded throughout the lifetime of the company and remains a timeless classic. Inspired by the Art Deco movement popular at the time of its creation, Directors Gothic was designed with an eye toward expanded utility for use in advertising headline and smart corporate materials.
Directors Gothic was painstakingly developed from the original font glass masters from the 1930s and includes a full international character compliment, automatic fractionals, ordinals, and an impressively large assortment of alternate characters in dynamic OpenType format.
