But what font does Spotify use? Read on below to find to find out everything you need to know.
What font does Spotify use?
Spotify uses a font called Spotify Circular which is a modified version of another font called Gotham Circular. It is available in several different versions, depending on the italics and weights, all having the same spaces and width to keep consistency.
Previously, the company used it together with another font called Proxima Nova, which was also similar to Gotham Circular, but now decided to use their own version of the font. This decision was probably caused by the company wanting to focus on a more unique version of the font, as Proxima Nova was in use by several other companies on the net.
How was the Spotify font created?
The original Spotify logo was inspired by the Gotham Medium typeface, but also giving it some slight modifications for a unique spin. Originally, the Gotham font was created in the early 2000s by Tobias Frere Jones. The designer mentioned that he was inspired to create the font by the architectural style and design of New York City.
