Filmotype Modern is one of the hallmarks of the Free Style faces of the Filmotype Library. This bouncy sans serif was originally introduced in the early 1950s and captures the essence of mid-century casual playfulness.
The typeface was used for the horizontal-moving end credits of the Match Game, a comedy game show that aired on CBS in the 1970’s. It was just the right fit for the overall comic theme of the show.
Filmotype Modern was developed from the original font filmstrips and includes a full international character compliment, automatic ligature combinations, ordinals, fractionals, and a host of alternate characters in dynamic OpenType format.
