:: Font Description

G A N Y M E D E a S E N T I N E L T Y P E designed by James Arboghast

Ganymede is a geometric linear font combining industrial & architectural themes.

Chiselled forms and a crisp finish parallel automotive styling & industrial design from the turn of the 21st century, while the straight sides resemble road signage fonts like DIN 1451, and to a lesser degree hand-lettered shop signs in the grotesk style.

Ganymede's clean, discreet forms recall modernist minimalism of the 1920s and 30s sparked by the Bauhaus; in particular the curves supplanting diagonal strokes in the X, Y and V echo Ed Benguiat's emblematic 1970s font---Bauhaus, itself a descendant of Bayer Universal.

Ganymede's structured & monumental capitals suits them to architectural & signage use. The matching small caps fonts were crafted specifically with architectural & titling use in mind. Their neutral geometry also allows them to occupy a more remote typographic terrain---of futuristic & scientific subject matter.

Ganymede 3D is a block shadow variant designed for billboards & signage, free for personal & non-profit use.

'Ganymede' is a figure from Greek mythology---a mortal youth of great beauty abducted by the gods.
