Gill Sans is a sans-serif typeface designed by Eric Gill and released by the British branch of Monotype from 1928 onwards. The original design was created in 1926 when Douglas Cleverdon opened a bookshop in his home town of Bristol, for which Gill painted a fascia over the window in sans-serif capitals.
In addition, Gill sketched a design for Cleverdon as a guide for him to use for notices and announcements. Gill developed his design into a typeface on the commission of Stanley Morison of Monotype, who hoped that the design could be a competitor to the sans-serif Erbar, Futura and Kabel families, which were being launched in Germany during the latter 1920s.
