Benton Sans Wide Font Family

Broad sans serifs are uncommon. The most frequently used wide option in this American Gothic genre is Trade Gothic Extended, but it’s limited to just two weights. One reason for the dearth of sans options with wide proportions is simply that they are quite difficult to draw. Creating an extended member that fits with the rest of a sans family requires a skillful, tasteful hand. Fortunately, we know a guy named Cyrus Highsmith.
Highsmith’s Benton Sans Wide is an alternative to early 20th-century workhorses like Trade (and its forebear News Gothic), offering a more complete palette with a full range of weights, italics, small caps, and figures. The Benton Sans family is also more uniform in design, useful when consistency across weights and widths is more important than individual flavors.
With this release we’re also updating the entire Benton Sans family, rolling small caps and figure styles into full-featured OpenType fonts and adding new glyphs such as tabular figures and extended language support. The fonts now cover all major languages and dialects written with the Latin alphabet.
