About Trade Gothic Next Font Family


In 1948, Mergenthaler Linotype released the first weights of Trade Gothic, designed by Jackson Burke. Over the next 12 years Burke, who was the company’s Director of Typographic Development from 1948 through 1963, continued to expand the family.

Trade Gothic Next is the 2008 revision of Jackson Burke’s design. Developed over a prolonged period of time, the original Trade Gothic showed many inconsistencies.

Under the direction of Linotype’s Type Director Akira Kobayashi, American type designer Tom Grace, a graduate of the MA Typeface Design in Reading, redesigned, revised and expand the Trade Gothic family. Many details were improved, such as the terminals and stroke endings, symbols, and the spacing and kerning. Moreover, there are newly added compressed widths and heavy weights perfect for setting even more powerful headlines.

Trade Gothic Next is a sans-serif typeface designed by Paul Hunt. It is the successor to the Trade Gothic typeface which was designed by Robert Slimbach in 1988. The new typeface has a more humanist design with taller x-heights and wider apertures. The typeface is available in three weights—light, regular, and bold—each with matching italics.

This sans-serif typeface is perfect for any display or text use. Its simple, yet strong forms make it highly legible, while its wide range of weights and styles give you plenty of options to choose from. Trade Gothic Next is a versatile typeface that will give your designs a clean and modern look.

Trade Gothic Next brings more features and better quality for today’s demanding typographers.
