Inspiration for the Daytonaâ„¢ typeface family came from a desire to provide the best fonts for use in televised sporting events. Jim Wasco, the typefaceâ€™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.
