Composed of two typefaces, Regular and Fat, Metro Gothic is a modern rendition of Eurostile letterforms. MG’s wide unicase characters were designed on a geometric grid while incorporating only two polygonal forms: the rectangle and quarter circle. The actual appearance of the characters aside from their metrics lends its influence to Art Deco, Bauhaus and Seventies design standards.
MetroGothic is great for use in all documents but is especially effective as a headline or short caption typeface. Included is a complete glyph set including European characters, currency symbols-including the new Euro symbol and alternate caps for “E” “R” and “Y”.
