Background

Cyrus Highsmith created Dispatch in his search for an industrial grade slab-serif to serve as text and display. A taut amalgam of letterforms found in typescript, on engineering blueprints and on shipping labels brings surprise, power and an energetic excitement to a slot once limited to the simple and repetitive geometry of City. Dispatch, a foursquare typeface with a syncopated beat, designed for heavy commercial lifting.
