Font Family: Zocalo Banner, Number of fonts: 8*OTF, Type Foundry: Font Bureau, Designer: Cyrus Highsmith, Design date: 2002 - 2008
Eduardo Danilo’s dramatic redesign of El Universal, a leading Mexico City daily, introduced Cyrus Highsmith’s Zócalo.
The original text, and display series was tuned for distinct character frequency and repetition when set in Spanish.
Nicholas Kis’s oldstyle and Chauncey Griffith’s classic newsface Ionic No. 5 inspired the sturdy text while the "energetic character of Mexico City” influenced the display.
Among other uses, Zócalo Banner is recommended for Newspaper, Magazine and Custom use.
