Gill Sans alternativesNot bad, but you can do better

I com­plain about sys­tem fonts, but I won’t say a bad word about Gill Sans—it’s over­ex­posed, but its un­con­ven­tional de­tails give it an en­dur­ing charm. Gill Sans lit the way for other sans serif fonts that com­bine geo­met­ric pre­ci­sion with looser hand-drawn fea­tures, like Ideal Sans, Bran­don Text, and Ver­lag, which to­gether prove that be­ing geo­met­ric doesn’t mean be­ing dull. (My own geo­met­ric sans serif, Con­course, also takes some cues from Gill Sans.)
