What is the Shannon™ font?
Shannon was co-designed for Compugraphic in 1982 by Kris Holmes and Janice Prescott. The design is a humanistic sans serif with slightly flared stems reminiscent of Optima.
The book weight is comfortable to read in short- to medium-length texts, while the two bolder weights provide good contrast in headlines and other display situations.

You're probably thinking - Is Shannon™ available to Download for free?
The short answer is no. Shannon™ is definitely not available as a free download font. This is a premium font which mean that you will have to pay to download and use it in your project. We showcase fonts on SharedFonts that are almost all premium fonts. Feel free to waste valuable hours of your time searching for a free download of Shannon™, but take it from me, you will not be successful in your quest. Just think how much time and effort you will save if you just pay for Shannon™ and be done with it.
It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Shannon™ is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Shannon™ and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Shannon™.
Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Shannon™ for free.

In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for Shannon™ remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
