Gill Sans™ Light font is a twentieth century sans serif that has a simplicity of form which does not reject traditional forms and proportions, and gives the face a humanist feel. Gill Sans was designed by Eric Gill. Gill Sans Light is best used in larger sizes for display in advertising, packaging and labels. Gill Sans was first introduced in 1928. Eric Gill studied under the renowned calligrapher, Edward Johnston, the designer of the London Underground sans serif typeface. This influenced Gill who later experimented with sans serif designs, and in due course produced a set of capital letters. Character Set: Latin-1, WGL Pan-European (Eastern Europe, Cyrillic, Greek and Turkish).
