Bernhard Gothic

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bernhard Gothic is a family of geometric sans serif typeface designed by Lucian Bernhard in 1929 for the  American Type Founders (ATF). Five variations by Bernhard were introduced over two years:

  • Bernhard Gothic Light (1929)
  • Bernhard Gothic Medium (1929)
  • Bernhard Gothic Light Italic (1930)
  • Bernhard Gothic Heavy (1930)
  • Bernhard Gothic Extra Heavy (1930)

A final member of the family, Bernhard Gothic Medium Condensed, was introduced by ATF in 1936, but it is unclear as to who the designer was.[1]

Bernhard Gothic is more organic and less regular than other geometric sans-serif typefaces, including Futura, Kabel, Vogue, and Twentieth Century, showing influence of Bernhard's earlier more expressionistic faces. It is a "spurless" design, similar to the contemporary Semplicità and Universal Grotesk and more recently FF Dax, in which strokes end without terminals.[2][3] This gives an effect of modernism, detached from handwriting conventions.[2]

Hot metal copies

Intertype's 1936 copy was called Greeting Gothic.[4]
