Graphics, User Interfaces You probably missed this earth-shattering news, but Ikea IKEA, the Swedish furniture and other assorted home decoration products company, has switched fonts. The company always used the Futura font for its catalogues, but the latest edition has ditched it in favour of Verdana. This has caused quite the stir among typography geeks.

Print: DTL Prokyon. Absolutely gorgeous font with a lot of style and character, also will set you back 1600$ for the full family.

Coding: Practically, I am a big fan of consolas, it is sort of the monospace font that looks like a normal sans font. Monaco is just classier though, and I have a soft spot in my heart for lucida sans.

On Screen: Verdana is an absolutely fabulous font, but IMO Calibri beats it.
