Candara is a humanist sans-serif typeface designed by Gary Munch and commissioned by Microsoft.

Expressway is a sans-serif font family inspired by the U.S. Department of Transportationís FHWA Series
of Standard Alphabets. For the second half of the 20th Century, it was the font most used on road signs in U.S., Canada, Mexico, Australia, Spain,Venezuela,the Netherlands, Brazil, Argentina, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Mongolia and New Zealand.
Rather than sticking too closely to government specs, Expressway is a more practical design that still holds on to that old, road sign feeling.

This font includes a license that allows free commercial use: sometimes referred to as a desktop license.
