C. Winkow designed Reporter for the Wagner foundry in 1938.
The strokes of this interesting script have the texture of dry brushwritten letters, and the alignment is slightly irregular, giving it a spontaneous feeling. Reporter No. 2 is a slightly simplified version of the original Reporter, without the numerous small white strokes inside its stems, which gave the original a scribbly effect.
Reporter No. 2 is bold and informal; it works well in signs, posters, and other display uses.
