English GrotesqueDesigner: Rian Hughes
Publisher: Device
English Grotesque was developed by Rian Hughes and published by Device. English Grotesque consists of 6 styles and family plan choices. p >

English Grotesque is based upon the percentages of an early 20th century signwriter's sans, emphasising the particular tricks of type of the duration. Sharing a similar Roman circle-and-square building and construction as Gill Sans or Johnston Train, it has a broad T and W, a narrow S, and a long-tailed R.

The Roman alphabet did not consist of a lower-case, and for that reason early sans-serifs tended to base theirs on handwritten or cursive designs, resulting in more even character widths. English Grotesque, by contrast, brings the more characterful percentages of the capitals through to the lower case.

Available in six weights, with optional alternative variations for the Q, &&, ₤ and J.
