In the 1920s the Danish architect, printer and designer Knud V. Engelhardt made some striking typefaces for signage. The Swedish typeface designer Mårten Thavenius used some structural elements from the work of Engelhardt when he designed Skilt Gothic—a typeface to be used for display and text settings in the 21st century.
Skilt Gothic comes in nine weights—thin, light, regular, medium, semibold, bold, extrabold, black and ultra—in roman and italic respectively. A wide range of glyph alternatives are accessible through OpenType features. Skilt Gothic has a rich language support.
