Benton Sans

80 Styles

In 1903 faced with the welter of sans offered by ATF, Morris Fuller Benton designed News Gothic, a 20th century standard. In 1995 Tobias Frere-Jones studied drawings in the Smithsonian and started a redesign. Cyrus Highsmith reviewed News Gothic, and with the Font Bureau studio expanded it into Benton Sans, a far reaching new series, with matched weights, widths and performance well beyond the limits of the original; FB 1995-2012


Benton Sans is provided as premium OpenType fonts with a full set of professional OT layout features and extended language support.

Certain styles of Benton Sans are also available as OpenType WGL fonts which cover the Microsoft WGL pan-European character set, including Greek and Cyrillic, and support all EU languages. Please call or email us with your inquiry.

Among other uses, Benton Sans is recommended for Newspaper, Magazine, Book and Corporate use.
