About Daytona

Inspiration for the Daytona™ typeface family came from a desire to provide the best fonts for use in televised sporting events. Jim Wasco, the typeface’s designer, drew the design as sturdy squared letters based on humanist shapes and proportions. Letters were designed with legibility in mind, kept narrow for economy of space, and inter-character spacing was established for easy reading. Daytona’s soft rounded corners also make for a friendly and appealing design.

About Jim Wasco

Jim Wasco tells the story of his introduction to the typographic arts, “My father taught me about lettering, proper spacing, letter proportions and balance. Rules like: a letter should be unique and not ever confused with a different letters; Type should not distract from readability; the white space and black space are equally important; Round shapes need to be larger to appear the same as square shapes; Weights of round, diagonal and straight strokes need to match optically.”

Today, Wasco is an award-winning senior typeface designer at Monotype. His most recent designs include the square-jawed Neue Aachen™ supremely elegant Elegy ™, geometric sans serif – with an un-geometric twist – Harmonia Sans ™ and now the Daytona™ typeface.
