Century Gothic is a sans-serif typeface in the geometric style, released by Monotype Imaging in 1991. It is strongly influenced by the font Futura, though with a higher x-height, and its design history also derives from two separate typefaces in tended as Futura competitors.

Century Gothic History
The Century Gothic design is strongly influenced by the geometric sans serif styles of the 1920s and 30s, which themselves were part of a past-Victorian design evolution. Twentieth Century font design, as well as the classic Futura design, but could be easily adaptable to the digital technology. This would lead to the development of the Century Gothic design and a compelling new look that had the best of both words.

“Century Gothic is based on Monotype 20th Century, which was drawn by Sol Hess between 1936 and 1947. Century Gothic maintains the basic design of 20th Century but has an enlarged x-height and has been dmodified to ensure satisfactory output from modern digital systems.”

Because of its open, friendly style, you will often see the Century Gothic design widely used in media titling, including on the television shows “Star Trek: Enterprise” and in logos for both the television show “Weezer”, and the GMA Network. It was also used in the logo for the James Bond fild “Casino Royale”. It is a popular font for use in advertising, particularly when headlines or small amounts of type are needed.

Because of its clear, clean design, the Century Gothic design can often be found in at use in schools and when teaching languages. Because this is a font that si often as part of the standard Microsoft font packages, it is often used as a substitute for the similar Futura typeface.

A spacious, modern version of a classic mid-century font, the Century Gothic design embodies the digital age with its sleek sans serif style, but still retains the graceful geometric look common to early 20th-century typefaces. It is supported by all major browsers on the web and is therefore considered a “safe” font to use for web design as it will translate well across multiple platforms.
