About this font family

Alternate Gothic was designed by Morris Fuller Benton for American Typefounders Company in 1903.

All three weights of Alternate Gothic are bold and narrow. In fact, this face is essentially a condensed version of Benton’s other well-known sans serif types, Franklin Gothic and News Gothic.

In the early twentieth century, the modern concept of type “families” had not yet been formed — and though Benton designed these sans serifs to harmonize with each other, the foundry gave them different names. More…

Robust, dark, and coolly competent, Alternate Gothic is a good choice when strong typographic statements must fit into tight spaces.

As a modern usage, it is currently the font of YouTube’s homepage logo.
