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.

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!
