Free alternative to Gotham font.  All the way back in 2007 I was working on a fan site and campaign to save the HBO TV series “John From Cincinnati” (JOHN).  As fate would have it, my website became the fan site and campaign central for us “Monad-istas” (which is how we fans refer to ourselves) which you can still find at

However, it is a premium font that not everyone can afford.  This is why I was happy to find this little article by Author: Oliur Rahman, Founder & CEO of UltraLin, that shows a  free alternative to Gotham Font called Montserrat. And it’s in the a Google font library which makes it excellent for websites.  If you look closely at the comparison lines below you will see how remarkably close the two fonts are.
