Relay reaches back to the middle of the last century for inspiration.
In England, Edward Johnston and Eric Gill applied humanist proportions and shapes to the geometric sanserif and established a trend within European art deco. In the United States, C.H. Griffith and W.A. Dwiggins achieved a similar effect with Metro, influencing American lettering from the diner to the comic book.
Cyrus Highsmith, a lifelong fan of the comics, has designed a spirited new series within this American tradition.
Among other uses, Relay is recommended for Newspaper, Magazine, Book and Corporate use.
