Hi: This font will not be part of the Adobe font collection starting May 15. Suggestions on replacement fonts? Thanks.
Thanks so much, I will check them out.
Thanks for this, very helpful recommendations
In the future is there some way to give users a warning before fonts are pulled from the collection? I have used Titling Gothic on virtually all materials created for one client and now I am going to have to go through and replace it in hundreds of places.
I think this got posted below, was supposed to address the Adobe employee.
They actually did send several emails before pulling those fonts out. They also allow the Adobe Fonts users to have special offers on the fonts licences. That is annoying anyway...
It is tough when you find that special font and you have used it across campaigns, etc. We have the same deal. We did run several tests. We ended up using "Obviously" which was not a perfect fit. Trade Gothic Next was really close. It some characters a better fit. Check it out and good luck.
Yeah it sucks, I have the feeling there is something that does not work with Typekit's business model. You never know if a font will still be available in the next few years. I end up being reluctent to use the fonts beyond a on shot job or for outlined branding assets... I otherwise pay for licenses when the budget allows it, or just go for open source options...
I entirely second this. I didn't receive any warning emails or notifications in CC apps, and now have a number of serious problems with clients because this font is no longer available. It's all well and good to say 'license direct from the foundry', but budget rarely allows me this luxury. Moreover, what's the point of having a type utility if we're not able to really trust it? Typekit's whole premise when launched was that it was a clean, comprehensive, user-friendly type-library solution for designers, and pulling a huge family of popular fonts without warning really undermines this.
All the more reason NOT to rely on Adobe and their font collection. you are much better off purchasing the font you want and using a font utility to load it on your computer. Fool me once....
Well this is something I hadn't expected...I must say that I'm not too impressed. I hope it doesn't become a regular thing.
It's totally dependent on the font foundaries who own the fonts and who license their use through Adobe. If you are concerned about losing access through Adobe, then you should probably contact the owning foundary and license directly from them.
Hi, I am really also not very happy about this. As I have used it for a whole Visual Identity. I can not find any mails, where this is informed. Can you please send any suggestions on where I can by the font? Thanx a million. // Linda
Titling Gothic is produced by Font Bureau.
Hi I'm in Canada and have been using Titling Gothic since the first week of September, 2020 and now I see its been taken off.
This is very disappointing. As mentioned by other users a lot of my work was based around it.
Question to everyone, whats the next best substitute for this font on Adobe Typekit (other than the ones mentioned like Balboa, Roboto and Obviously, I didn't like those as much)?
A couple others that might work are: Trade Gothic Next LT Pro or Franklin Gothic URW Ext.
Damnit!! This was such a good font!
Yeah what a shame. I went a head and bought the font. The alternative don't compare.
I know it's been a long time but I'm going through the same ordeal now with replacing the Titling Gothic Normal, and the closest fonts I could find are Pragmatica Extended & Nimbus Sans Extended.
Any other suggestions?
A late reply but I found Roc Grotesk Wide (on typekit) works well and Konstant Grotesk (Behance - theres 1 weight for personal free use) is also a good alternative. Really upset Titling Gothic was removed but these are the alternatives I have personally gone with.
