Monotype Imaging Announces Gill Sans as the Typeface for the 2004 Olympic Games

Press Release

Monotype Imaging’s Gill Sans® typeface, the sans serif design created by Eric Gill in 1928 for the Monotype Corporation Ltd., is the official typeface for the Games of the XXVIII Olympiad in Athens. The Olympic committee’s selection of Gill Sans was influenced partly by ancient stone-cut inscriptions, abundant in Greece.

The font will be used in the signage and marketing literature, as well as various printed items used throughout the Olympics.
