The highly legible Shannon font family was designed by Janice Prescott Fishman and Kris Holmes exclusively for Compugraphic in 1982. Its design blends ancient Irish calligraphy from the Book of Kells and contemporary letterforms. Shannon is a modified sans serif typeface with slightly flared terminals that give the effect of serifs, thus aiding readability. Shannon is ideal for a whole range of uses: advertising and magazines to slides and data sheets.
Shannon supports 113 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
