FranklinGothicHandLight was designed by Gert Wiescher and released by Wiescher Design. FranklinGothicHandLight consists of 1 style. p > FranklinGothicHandLight is part of a series of hand-drawn font styles from method back in time-- before computer systems changed the way we worked.

When I was in marketing-- prior to computer systems-- a really time consuming part of my day-to-day work was sketching headings. I utilized to be able to sketch headings in Franklin Gothic, Times, Futura, Helvetica and numerous scripts.

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

Great days, much like today!

Your emotional type designer from the past Gert Wiescher
