What is the Deansgate font?
DEANSGATE and DEANSGATE CONDENSED are based on the clearest and most distinctive of the sans-serif letterforms used on Manchester street nameplates, and easily identified by a pointy Z and pointed vertex/apex on M and W.
The Bold weights of each family are perfect for signage, with almost mono-weight strokes designed for easy reading, close up or at distance, and with the legible, slightly ’squarified’ round shapes normally associated with grotesque faces. The new lowercase tips the hat to the Transport fonts, and the Regular and Light weights transfer the clarity of the Bold faces to Deansgate’s text fonts which are ideal for use on the web or in print. Each weight has a complementary Italic.
