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.

Benton Sans is also available for online use with @font-face through the Webtype hosted font service.

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