Background

Initially designed in the early-to-mid 1950s, Filmotype Gem is the boldest member of Filmotype’s larger Grotesque condensed ‘G’ series sans serif typefaces.

Remastered and expanded with exacting precision from the original filmstrips, Filmotype Gem includes a full international character compliment, automatic fractionals, ordinals, and a suite of alternates in dynamic OpenType format.
