Highway Sans Pro is based on the standard typefaces used for highway signs and other byways open to public travel in the United States. These standards were established by the US Federal Highway Administration in 1966 following several studies which were conducted at the California Department of Transportation in the 1940’s. The Parachute® series has been designed to fit typographic requirements and includes a variety of styles from black to extra thin. Special attention has been given to the italics, which were designed from ground up to fit the term true-italics. Several updates were released since its debut in 2001, with this last “Pro” version being the most powerful. It supports 21 special opentype features like small caps, fractions, ordinals, etc. and offers multilingual support for all European languages including Greek and Cyrillic. Finally, every font in this family has been completed with 270 copyright-free symbols, some of which have been proposed by several international organizations for packaging, public areas, environment, transportation, computers, fabric care and urban life.
