ITC Goudy Sans: the different sans serif typefaces

DT&G News and views for graphic designers

ITC Goudy Sans is a fresh Humanistic Sans from the ITC Design Staff at the Frederic W. Goudy Foundry
      ITC Goudy Sans is different from most sans serif typefaces, which tend to have a quiet, conservative structure. Instead, ITC Goudy Sans is friendly, almost playful, with an unusual cursive italic. Unlike the obliqued roman italics that are typical of its sans serif cousins, Goudy Sans italic has a light, flowing quality that both complements and enhances the roman design.

A new Sans in the Avant Garde tradition

DT&G News and views for graphic designers

Font Designer Mathieu Desjardins is the Senior Art Director for The Pangram Foundry in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. They have a decided taste for classic sans serif fonts. The Pangram Typeface boasts more than 2800 meticulously crafted glyphs -- it has seven weights from ExtraLight to Black -- obviously inspired by some of the greatest historic typefaces like Avant Garde and Folio.
You can try the fonts for free. Mathieu believes :
      ... a great font is one that uplifts rather than overshadows the design it is part of.
