Background

Trade Gothic was designed in 1948 by Jackson Burke, a book and type designer from California. The typeface is a simple grotesk that remains a common choice for books, magazines, and newspapers due to its spacious counters and legibility. It portrays a wonderful character and sturdiness, especially in condensed weights.
