Cyrus Highsmith created Dispatch in his search for an industrial grade slab-serif that can serve as a text and display face alike. 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 the typeface City. Dispatch, a foursquare design with a syncopated beat, made for heavy commercial lifting. Font Bureau, 1999–2000
