Monotype Revives One Of London’s Most Iconic Typefaces

Introducing Johnston100: A contemporary update to Transport for London’s Johnston typeface, to mark the centennial of its use across the bus, rail and Underground systems.


Marking the centennial of Johnston, the London transport network’s iconic typeface, Monotype and Transport for London (TfL) today unveiled the forthcoming release of the newly designed Johnston100 typeface. Remastered by Monotype to bring back the original flavour of the Johnston design developed 100 years ago, Johnston100 expands the palette of the original typeface to embrace both contemporary typographic trends and new digital requirements. Johnston100 includes five weights of the design, including two brand new contemporary weights: hairline and thin, and will start to appearing across the TfL network later this year. Johnston was originally designed by Edward Johnston in 1916 and is instantly recognisable as the graphic language of London. Used across all trains and buses, station signage and wayfinding, Johnston is ingrained in the fabric of the city.
