Description 

This is a typeface that stands tall, and is able to deliver the message: “I am here, and I am here to stay” – that the free press will not be intimidated by political assassinations. The tone has authority, yet maintains an elegance. A sculptural approach to the design makes each and every character a story in itself. The style of the typeface is that of a classical newspaper headline. Its treatment, though, is modern in its open counters, the tension in the curves, and the boldness of its presence.
