Background

Originally released in the late 1960s, Filmotype expanded its Grotesque typeface category with the introduction of its Miner, Marlette and Manchester typefaces offering its own original take on this modern sans serif style. Type designer Rian Hughes refined and further expanded these styles creating the first expansion the original library since the mid-1970s with Mansfield and Meredith.

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