Background

Filmotype Major is one of the hallmarks of the Free Style faces of the Filmotype Library. This bouncy sans serif was originally introduced in the early 1950s and captures the essence of mid-century casual playfulness. Its most popular use can be seen as the titling font for the popular children’s book by Dr. Seuss entitled One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish released in 1960.

Filmotype Major was developed from the original font filmstrips and includes a full international character compliment, automatic ligature combinations, ordinals, fractionals, and a host of alternate characters in dynamic OpenType format.
