About this font family
Cyrus Highsmith began work on Daley’s Gothic in 1997, experimenting with a steel brush and ink on paper. After sketching a few characters, he headed to the nearest computer and played out the rest of the characters.
He went on to draw many variations, and in 1998, finally settled on the three weights and matching italics now released.
Cyrus named the family after his mother, who taught him how to draw in the first place.
