This is a listing of all glyphs contained in the
OpenType variants that may only be accessible via OpenType-aware
Each basic character (“A”) is followed by Unicode variants of the same
character (Á, Ä…), then OpenType variants (small caps, alternates,
ligatures…). This way you can see all the variations on a single
character in one place.
You can use this font in any of the following places. Read the full EULA text for details about each license. If

as some restrictions may apply—such as use in logos/trademarks, geographic restrictions (number of
locations), and products that will be sold.
Adding users later:
Desktop licenses are cumulative. If you require a Desktop license that covers additional users, simply
place a new order for the same Desktop package, for the number of additional users.
Webfonts can be used on a single domain. Agencies responsible for multiple websites, for example web
design agencies or hosting providers, may not share a single webfont license across multiple websites.
Every time the webpage using the webfont kit is loaded (i.e, the webfont kit CSS which holds the
@font-face rule is called) the counting system counts a single pageview for each webfont within the
For usage in graphic images shown on the website, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow for it.
MyFonts offers three types of webfont licenses: Annual, Pay Once, and Pay As You Go. Only one of these
three would be available for a given webfont. Click here to
You can use this type of license to embed fonts into digital ads, such as ads built using HTML5.
We'll supply a kit containing webfonts that can be used within digital ads, such as banner ads. This kit
may be shared with third parties who are working on your behalf to produce the ad creatives, however you
are wholly responsible for it.
HTML5 ads use webfonts, so why purchase a Digital Ads license rather than a Webfont license?
There are a few reasons, such as the Digital Ads EULA having terms that enable usage in digital ads and on
Digital advertisements also have different usage patterns compared to websites. Most websites generally
have consistent pageviews month-to-month whereas advertising impressions can vary wildly month-to-month.
Prices reflect this, making it much less expensive to use a Digital Ad license.
If you know the number of impressions the campaign requires, that amount can be ordered before the
campaign begins. For campaigns where number impressions is unknown until the end of the campaign, you can
true up at the end of each calendar month.
You can use an Electronic Doc license to embed the font in an electronic publication such as an eBook,
eMagazine, eNewspaper, or interactive PDF.
An Electronic Doc license is based on the number of publications in which the font is used. Each issue
counts as a separate publication. Regional or format variations don't count as separate publications.
Updated versions of publications that are free to previous customers do not need a new license; otherwise,
each new version that is released counts as a separate publication.
For font usage in graphic images shown as the ePub cover, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow
When designer Stuart de Rozario surveyed the fonts used in signage on London’s public transport systems, he reached a dead end. They seemed staid, sterile, lacking in personality, and ill-suited to use by modern brands.
He was pointed in another direction entirely. ‘The driving force behind my thoughts was to design something more current and fresh without compromising legibility and clarity. A font with both personality and function, that’s versatile and large and small sizes, and effortless to read, but which also says something new.’
Late for a meeting and can’t find your way? Trying to catch a flight? Lost in a hospital? Reading signs is a different business to reading a book or a newspaper. Text on signs needs to be deciphered quickly and effortlessly. So the legibility criteria for signage letterforms are different to those for normal reading, too.
Throughout FS Millbank’s uppercase and lowercase alphabets, characters have been given features for extra definition, including: wide ink traps on the A, K, M, V, W, X and Y; a serifed i, accentuated spurs on the a, d, l u; and different x-height shapes on the b, g, p and q.
Distinctive forms and generous, open internal shapes all help the quick reading of sign text, and wide, open terminals and counters allow similar letter shapes to be distinguished easily when viewed at different angles. Running down a corridor, maybe...
Standard type tends to glow on the kind of dark backgrounds often used for signage, and look heavier than its true weight. To correct the imbalance caused by this optical trick, special weights of the typeface have to be drawn for these ‘negative’, light-on-dark applications.
These are lighter than their comparable positive weights to overcome the ‘glow’ effect. After extensive tests of the negative weights, at all sizes, we achieved the right optical balance. Glowing, glowing, gone.
This wouldn’t be a signage typeface without its own set of icons, or symbols, to help people find what they’re looking for. So, to sit alongside the positive and negative fonts, we’ve created a comprehensive set of 172 icons, covering a wide range of applications from transport and user interface to information and directional. Designed within the typeface capital height, they sit on the baseline and are spaced centrally.
