A typographic exploration of the Univers's natural wonders

XYZ Type Poster

A Typographic Poster Cataloging the Fifty-Nine National Parks of the United States


Design By James Louis Walker

Type Hike has partnered with the independent type foundry, XYZ Type, lending us two of their new fonts for this screen-printed poster featuring all fifty-nine US National Parks. This two-color design, printed on French Midnight Blue, emphasizes the diverse natural features that give many parks their names, using two fonts created by XYZ Type: Cortado and Escalator. Learn more about XYZ Type here.


Cortado translates the spontaneous energy of pointed brushwork into digital type. With a strikingly fresh aesthetic, Cortado has breezy confidence and mid-century cool. Learn more and purchase Cortado at XYZ.


Escalator is a simple sans serif typeface that will be publicly available soon. This poster serves as Escalator's first public use!
