FranklinGothicHandBold was developed by Gert Wiescher and published by Wiescher Design. FranklinGothicHandBold contains 1 design. p > FranklinGothicHandBold is another part of a series of hand-drawn typefaces from way back in time-- prior to computers changed the way we worked in marketing.

When I was in advertising-- prior to computer systems-- an extremely time consuming part of my daily work was sketching headlines. I utilized to be able to sketch headings in Franklin Gothic, Times, Futura, Helvetica and a number of scripts.

We had a sort of big inverted camera-- which we called Lucy. We forecasted the alphabet onto a sheet of transparent paper, laid out the letters with a fineliner and then filled them in. It was really laborious work, however the resulting headline had its own appeal and we had a long-term race going on who was best and fastest. I won the majority of the time! They utilized to call me the fastest 'Magic Marker' this side of the Atlantic.

Great days, similar to today!
