Let’s get fashionable. Gill Sans is for sure one of the most used fonts for corporate design in the fashion industry. Whe a brand claims elegance and self confidence this font is a sure shot. But with the wide use (since Mac OSX it’s even a standard system font) one brand looks like another, so let’s get some alternatives.

    It’s a valid font, but to me is more an alternative to Avenir – much more open and constructed. Will keep it im mind.

Johnston, the typeface used on the London Underground, is the typeface that Gill Sans was inspired by, and the typeface which P22 Underground is a digitised version of, which is why I suggested it. It’s also a beautiful typeface!
