In his sketchbook, Cyrus Highsmith experimented developing a sans serif version of his slab serif Dispatch. As he drew strokes and counters, he realized that he had an original family with its own strong character, not just a sans serif partner for Dispatch. The discreet geometry gives Stainless a reliable presence without feeling rigid and static. Equipped with compressed, condensed, and wide variants, plus italics, it is an extensive, versatile series for editorial environments, headlines and display typography. Font Bureau, 2002–07.
