Detroit Metro - Detroit Metro® is a 1930's urban classic revival of 12 fonts from Metro light to rough together with the classic Regular styles and weights offering designers a wider range of options.
Madromit family consists of 5 styles for stacking colors and is, so to speak, the revival of the primitive digital type from the 80's and 90's.
Rather than sticking too closely to government specs, Expressway is a more practical design that still holds on to that old, road sign feeling. The full family has 7 weights, 2 widths plus italics for a total of 28 styles.
Numerals, math symbols and currency symbols are monospaced, making it easy to set up price lists and other tabular numeric data. When you use numerals in a title or headline, it's nice to have proportional spacing to keep it looking tight. Expressway has an OpenType feature which lets you switch to proportional numerals. Sometimes, when you have numerals in a sentence, sometimes it looks better with proportional lowercase (old-style) numerals.
Expressway numerals and monetary symbols are monospaced (tabular). This should make it easier to deal with columns of numerals, price lists etc. Most math symbols are monospaced too. Fractions include thirds, fifths, sixths and eighths. Fractions aren't the same width as numerals but they're all exactly the same width. They're all accessible as an OpenType feature. Upper and lower numeric ordinals have been added - they're monospaced too.
Other special additions: The Indian rupee and Turkish lira monetary symbols have been added. Primes and double primes have also been added so you no longer have to use quotes for foot and inch marks. A sound recording copyright symbol (circled P) has been added. The italics have been offset to the left a bit to make italicized words look evenly spaced between non-italicized words. The italics have had major work done to make the slant look less mechanical and more true to the feeling of the original road sign fonts. The original italics had the same kerning as the upright fonts. They've all been custom kerned.
