Designer Jim Wasco has already designed countless fonts and has been known as a font designer at Monotype for a long time. He has now published his latest design, Daytona.
The motivation to create the square sans came out of his disappointment with the font quality of sports shows, which left a great deal to be desired. As a result, Wasco took a font he had designed ten years ago for the Xbox as a model and created Daytona, which is now available.
The curved appearance of Daytona is based on the basic form of the superellipse. The result is a dynamic and sporty Grotesque, with a friendly, almost soft character.
Daytona has six styles, from Thin to Fat, each with the matching Italic and Condensed styles in the upright weights. Daytona is also equipped with several ligatures and alternative characters. The unusual shape of the upper-case “ß” is particularly striking.Until July 9, you have the chance to get the complete Daytona family in OpenType Pro format for only 99 USD/EUR*.
