Gotham is a geometric sans-serif typeface family designed by American type designer Tobias Frere-Jones and released from 2000. Gotham’s letterforms were inspired by examples of architectural signage of the mid-twentieth century. Gotham has a relatively broad design with a reasonably high x-height and wide apertures.
Since creation, Gotham has been highly visible due to its appearance in many notable places. This has included Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, Michigan State University branding, and the 2016 federal election campaign of the Australian Labor Party. The font has also been used on the cornerstone of the One World Trade Center, the tower built on the site of the former World Trade Center in New York. It is also the current font used in MPAA title cards for film trailers in the U.S.
The lettering that inspired this typeface originated from the style of 1920s era sans-serifs like Futura, where “Type, like architecture, like the organization of society itself, was to be reduced to its bare, efficient essentials, rid of undesirable, local or ethnic elements.” This theme was found frequently in Depression-era type in both North America and Europe, particularly Germany.
