Banks & MilesPublisher: K-Type
Banks & Miles is a sans serif and display sans font household. This typeface has 9 styles and was released by K-Type.

K-Type's ‘‘ Banks & Miles 'font styles are influenced by the geometric monoline lettering created for the British Post Workplace in 1970 by London design company Banks & & Miles, a task started and supervised by partner John Miles, and that included ‘‘ Double Line ‘' and ‘ Single Line' alphabets. The brand-new digital typeface is a reworking and extension of both alphabets.

Banks & & Miles Double Line is supplied in three weights - Light, Regular and Dark - variations accomplished by adjusting the width of the inline.

Banks & & Miles Single Line establishes the less pre-owned companion sans into a 3 weight household - Routine, Medium and Bold - each with an optically remedied oblique.

Although the ‘‘ Banks & Miles Double Line' and ‘‘ Banks & & Miles Single Line' font styles are based on the initial Post Office letterforms, glyphs have actually been drawn from scratch and consist of many adjustments and impertinent modifications, such as narrowing the excessively large Z and reducing the leg of the K. Numerous disparities exist between the Post Office Double and Single Line styles, and K-Type has tried to protect higher consistency between the two. For circumstances, a large apex on the Double Line's lowercase w is made pointed to match the uppercase W and the Single Line's W/w. Also, the gently sloping hook of Single Line's lowercase j is embraced for both households. The initial Single Line's R and k, which were incongruously simplified, are drawn in their more remarkable Double Line forms, and whilst the new Single Line fonts are decently condensed where proper, rounded letters keep the basically circular type of the Double Line.

Many characters that were not part of the initial project, such as @, ß, #, and currency signs, have actually been designed afresh, and a complete set of Latin Extended-A characters is included. The new font styles are an event of distinct functions like the delightful teardrop-shaped bowl of a, b, d, g, p and q, and a basic level of beauty not always achieved by inline typefaces.

The Post Workplace Double Line alphabet was utilized from the early 1970s, in various colours to signify the numerous parts of the Post Workplace business that included telecommunications, counter services and the Royal Mail. Even after the Post Workplace was split into different organizations in the 1980s, Post Office Counters and Royal Mail continued usage of the lettering, and a variation can still be seen within the Royal Mail cruciform logo.
