About this font family
Pill Gothic walks the tightrope between a heads down, hard working, utilitarian sans and something that stands out, saying, “Look at me!” Designers looking for a type that will work in blocks of text for callouts, captions and headlines will find that unique balance with Pill. Pill Gothic asks the question: what is the effect of a few truly unique characters on the meaning of a type? In particular, the ‘a’ and the ‘g’, while relating strongly to the forms of the other characters, stand out from the traditional milieu of sans serif types. The name Pill Gothic came from early studies of the condensed weight where the lower case characters had the shape of a pill capsule.
