ITC Avant Garde Gothic is a font household based mostly on the brand font used within the Avant-Garde journal. Herb Lubalin devised the brand idea and its companion headline typeface, then he and Tom Carnase, a companion in Lubalin’s design agency, labored collectively to rework the thought right into a full-fledged typeface.
The condensed fonts had been drawn by Ed Benguiat in 1974, and the obliques had been designed by André Gürtler, Erich Gschwind and Christian Mengelt in 1977.
The authentic designs embrace one model for setting headlines and one for textual content copy. However, within the preliminary digitization, solely the textual content design was chosen, and the ligatures and alternate characters weren’t included.
ITC Avant Garde Gothic Font household consists of 5 weights (four for condensed), with complementary obliques for widest width fonts.
When ITC Avant Garde Gothic Font launched the OpenType model of the font, the unique 33 alternate characters and ligatures, plus further characters had been included.
