Trade Gothic by Jackson Burke

Trade Gothic was first designed by Jackson Burke (opens in new tab) back in 1948. He continued to work on further weights and styles until 1960 while he was director of type development for Mergenthaler-Linotype in the USA.

Trade Gothic is often seen in advertising and multimedia in combination with roman text fonts, and the condensed versions are popular in the newspaper industry for headlines.

Trade Gothic is available to purchase from MyFonts.com (opens in new tab).
