ATF Agency Gothic was designed by Morris Fuller Benton in 1932 as a lone titling.
In 1990, David Berlow saw potential in the squared forms of the narrow, monotone capitals. He designed a lowercase and added a bold to produce Font Bureau Agency, an immediately popular hit.
Sensing strengths that surpassed those of a useful condensed, Font Bureau developed Agency into a major series offering five weights in five widths.
Among other uses, Agency FB is recommended for Magazine, Book, Web and Corporate use.
