New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm in the process of making a text face comparision for non-designer colleagues, using familiar fonts bundled with various operating systems and programs. And also a few unfamiliar (to them) text faces for contrast.
I know Franklin Gothic is known as a newspaper & advert headline face, but since it also comes with a lighter weight, is it ever suitable as a text face?
To me it looks businesslike, certainly not elegant, but preferable to Arial, for instance.
Thanks in advance.
