Filmotype Glenlake by Mark Simonson for Umbrella Type

Having disappeared from graphic design history, Filmotype Glenlake reappeared in 1994's "Ed Wood" with a starring role in the opening credits. The font however was initially named after a lake north of Chicago near the home of Filmotype's founders Al and Bea Friedman. Initially designed and released in 1955, this gothic sans-serif was re-mastered and expanded with exacting precision and includes a full international character compliment, automatic fractions, ordinals, an all-caps setting, and a suite of alternates in dynamic OpenType format.
