Gaslon is a display sans font released by Canada Type.

Gaslon is a minor reinterpretation and major growth of a 1973 film type called Corvina Black, originally designed for VGC by A. Bihari. While the initial typeface was popular in its own right, there were some things in it that were too eccentric to operate in the display applications it was intended for. A few of the letter combinations simply didn't work to their visual optimum. For example the a and o were too similar, ditto the C and G, the E, F and J were too frustrating to be set effectively within specific display screen uses.

Gaslon gets rid of these problems by the inclusion of plenty of alternates for the huge majority of the original letters. In fact, the initial a is itself now an alternate to a beautiful brand-new one. The Gaslon Alt font includes significant possibilities for both unicase use, and appropriate usage in conjunction with the main font style. This is our real homage to a typeface that had great potential more than three decades earlier, but was neglected by digitizers due to the fact that of a few quirks it had in movie type contexts.

Full of curves and invitation, Gaslon ranks really high among the friendliest poster faces ever made. It is perfect for friendly shop indications, kids book covers, and plenty of other applications. In reality, if you're preparing on adding to a few demonstrations around your area or city, you would most likely be much better off utilizing Gaslon to assist your sign/placard carry words and mottos that are huge but friendly. Absolutely nothing beats "DOWN WITH GAS COSTS" set in a nice creative mix of the many Gaslon letters.

The OpenType variation of Gaslon is a single font style that consists of all the alternates and niceties configured within functions accessible by OT-friendly programs.
