Guardian is a huge superfamily of typefaces designed by Paul Barnes and Christian Schwartz. It was originally created for the 2005 redesign of The Guardian and later published by Commercial Type between 2009–2013. Guardian is made up of eight related families—Egyptian Headline, Egyptian Text, Sans Headline (in four widths), Sans Text and Agate Sans. This makes Guardian a complete solution for solving any kind of serious typographic challenge.
