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 intended as Futura competitors. It is a digital typeface that has never been made into actual foundry type.
Likewise many other geometric sans-serifs, Century Gothic has got a great design with a single-story “a” and “g” and “M” with slanting sides resembling an upturned “W”. Century Gothic has a high x-height (tall lower-case characters). Its origins (see below) come from a design intended for large-print uses such as headings and signs, and so it has a reasonably purely geometric design closely based on the circle and square.
While many geometric sans-serif typefaces have been released to compete with the popular typeface Futura, Century Gothic is perhaps unique in its origin: it redraws one to match the design proportions of a second. Century Gothic was created to be a substitute font for ITC Avant Garde, designed by Herb Lubalin.
Century Gothic is quite a popular sans-serif typeface and one of the most appealing modern fonts. Sadly this gorgeous geometric font doesn’t have a free Web font alternative but furtunately you can find so closely similar and alternative typeface designed by various top designers around the world.
