Fifty-Nine National Parks poster

December 1, 2017 Type hike poster crop

We’ve partnered with Type Hike on their latest project, celebrating the “Fifty-Nine National Parks of the United States of America.” James Walker designed the poster using only XYZ Type’s fonts. 

The type-only design marks the first public use of our upcoming release Escalator, a straightforward but approachable geometric sans. The contrasting buoyant brushstrokes of Cortado emphasize the diverse natural features that give many parks their names. Escalator and Cortado were both originally client commissions, inspired by midcentury architectural signage and advertising scripts. 

Now available from Type Hike, in a limited run of 100 screen-printed posters. All profits will be donated to help protect and preserve the outdoors.
