Gill Sans is a classic sans-serif typeface designed by Eric Gill in 1928 and released by the Monotype Corporation. It has a humanist influence, with its open, almost calligraphic forms, and is characterized by its tall x-height and wide proportions. Its design features include a low contrast between thick and thin strokes, and the angled terminals on some of its letterforms. The font evokes a sense of elegance, sophistication, and timelessness, and is suitable for a wide range of uses. It is particularly well-suited to headlines, logos, and other display uses, and can also be used for body text in print and online. Gill Sans has been used for many iconic logos, including the BBC, Penguin Books, and Microsoft.
