At first take, it may be surprising to hear that a website of a government agency is an early adopter of Web fonts. But when you consider the FCC’s goal of promoting innovation in communication services and facilities, it makes sense.

Established in 1934 as an independent U.S. government agency, the Federal Communications Commission regulates interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories.

The commission’s website features background information on the FCC, a newsroom, reporting tools and a series of resources for working with the FCC. The site’s use of the Trade Gothic® family not only makes the text distinctive, but also keeps text machine readable and sizable, helping FCC.gov achieve elegance and accessibility.
