Background

Cyrus Highsmith designed Prensa Display to accompany his popular Prensa. The family shares a distinctive tension within the forms, achieved through a process of wrapping outside curves around the inside, a technique inspired by the work of W. A. Dwiggins. Expanded to include additional widths, Prensa Display features refined details and more compact proportions for really packing in powerful headlines.
