Journal Sans font

The typeface was designed at the Polygraphmash type design bureau in 1940-56 (project headed by Anatoly Shchukin) based on Erbar-Grotesk typeface of Ludwig & Mayer company, 1929, by Jakob Erbar, and on Metro typeface of Mergenthaler Linotype, 1929, by William A. Dwiggins. A sans serif of geometric style. It’s a good option for text and display typography. In 2014 designer Olexiy Volochay made some corrections in original digital data and extended the character set. The family was rereleased at ParaType in 2014.
