Coop Black (lowercase)
FF Meta 3
ITC Officina Display
VW Headline Light & Heckschrift
2000-2001. Based on Interstate by Tobias Frere-Jones. Commissioned by Citigroup.
Designed at Font Bureau.
When Citigroup chose Interstate as their new corporate typeface, they wanted to implement it in every way possible, including credit card bills, which are printed from a mainframe in Colorado that is able to print something like 1200 sheets per minute. I looked to Letter Gothic for a lot of spacing tricks, such as the lowercase i and l. I drew this in four weights, although I think they only use the Regular.
Font Bureau released a revised version of this face into their retail library early 2004. I'm not a big fan of the new i and l.
