TWA Flight Center typeface

Flight Center Gothic was designed for Michael Bierut’s team at Pentagram Design as part of a restoration of the TWA Flight Center, Eero Saarinen’s 1962 icon of modernist architecture at JFK airport in New York City. The typeface is a reinterpretation of the building’s original signage lettering, with origins in Johannes John’s ‘Fette Kursiv-Grotesk’, originally released as a standalone italic in 1892 by the J. John Söhne type foundry. David Jonathan Ross assisted with the final font production.
