In 1936 the German Standards committee Deutsches Institut Normung (DIN) officially proposed DIN 1451 as the standard type of lettering to be used in the field of road traffic. The purpose of this standard was to lay down a style of lettering which is timeless and easily legible. Unfortunately, these early letters lacked elegance and were not properly designed for typographic applications. Ever since, several type foundries adopted the original designs for digital photocomposition.

Today’s update comes with some interesting background story. A few months ago we got an email from the friendly guys over at WND.com, asking for a phone call; I wasn’t very familiar, so I investigated the site a bit before getting on the call, noticing that their headlines were all set in League Gothic. Well that was exactly what we talked about, and it turned out that they were in need of some extra stuff for it. We negotiated an arrangement we were both excited about, and set to work. Our first mission was to expand League Gothic’s character set, and we had some help in that arena from a fellow named Dannci, whose contributions we had been meaning to work with and expand on for some time. One of the things, I personally wanted to make sure of was to fix our silly quote issue - I’m not sure how it happened, but for the longest time our double quotes have been a single quote, and our single quotes were out of whack.

Top 10 fonts of 2008 Although 2008 was a very good year for sans-serifs, there was also an impressive crop of serif fonts. Strikingly original, Marat by Ludwig Übele was the most remarkable of them all: sturdy, compact, and very legible. Its superior quality and unique appearance met with great response from MyFonts’ customers, making it 2008’s best selling serif text font of the year. Although it works beautifully at small text sizes, its bold weights are full of character and can double as attention-grabbing headline faces.

League Gothic is a revival of an old classic, and one of our favorite typefaces, Alternate Gothic #1. It was originally designed by Morris Fuller Benton for the American Type Founders Company in 1903. The company went bankrupt in 1993, and since the original typeface was created before 1923, the typeface is in the public domain. We decided to make our own version, and contribute it to the Open Source Type Movement.
