HEX Franklin Variable

  • ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
    abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz 0123456789
400 800
65 100

A 21st-century tribute to the classic Franklin Gothic type family and its lighter-weight siblings, News Gothic and Lightline Gothic. The design draws specifically from ATF’s original fonts for letterpress printing, and not the later adaptations from other companies. Offered with discounted pricing while it’s still a work in progress.

Full disclosure: This typeface was designed by the editor of this website.
