About this font family
Trade Gothic inline is a quirky display companion for Trade Gothic Next, offering five different voices, and a whole lot of personality.

“If I kept the inlines the same, it created a lot of visual noise,” explains Yun. “I wanted each weight to be different enough, so in the end the weight and width of the letters was increasing and decreasing in size, and the inlines were too. The black is almost like an extra black, because the inline is smaller. It’s about trying to have different voices for each weight.”
Trade Gothic Inline is available in five weights, from light to black.
