Maximo is a condensed Egyptian display font family. The original had roots as a metal typeface, and was redesigned by Les Usherwood for his company, Typsettra. ITF exclusively licensed the typeface from Typsettra, and Steve Jackaman digitally engineered the typeface in 1997.
Maximo, like many Egyptian faces, excels at display and subhead sizes. It is incredibly powerful in all caps, and yet its lowercase set still showcases a soft feel. Like many Usherwood and Jackaman faces, it has been designed with utmost care with utility in mind.
