Highway (Sans Serif Font): Tuesday Type Treat

Dan Cassaro was inspired by a road trip to create Highway, a charming sans-serif typeface for all your traveling font needs. It has the heft and versatility to be a go-to display face.

HIGHWAY is an attempt to capture the charm of hand-done early to mid-century san-serif type, the kind of beautiful lettering that happens when a human hand tries to recreate something mechanical. Created during (and inspired by) a cross-country roadtrip, Highway may very well be the first typeface created in the back of a camper. Tons of alternate characters, ligatures, and OpenType sorcery make for endless custom lettering for logos, signage, and seminal prog-rock double albums. Roll on, Babes.
