Benguiat is a serif typeface designed by Ed Benguiat in 1977 and published by the International Typeface Corporation (ITC) in 1978. It is also known as ITC Benguiat, Revival 832, and BG. The typeface was used quite a lot in the 1980s on the covers of American horror novels. It was employed on the cover art of for several Stephen King novels which led to many imitators to use it as well. I'm very pleased that the typeface has seen a sort of mini revival after being used in the logo for the TV show Stranger Things.

I first saw Benguiat because it was included with my copy of CorelDRAW 7. I really liked the look of the typeface and, back in 2000, I used it to design the logo of the company where I work. I have since used it in various graphic projects.
