Frere-jones designed Interstane from 1993-4. He used the familiarity of the highway signs to create a very legible sans serif. This family includes 40 fonts in 3 widths and 7 weights.

Interstate
Serif: sans
Classifications: neo-grotesque.
Characteristics: terminals of the ascenders and descenders are cut at a 45 degree angle, open counters, curved strokes have a terminal at 45 from the baseline.
Usage: the legibility and amount of weights/styles of this font make it a good choice for display or text.

Frere-Jones designed this while at Font Bureau. He currently works with Johnathan Hoefler at their type foundry, Hoefler & Frere-Jones.
