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.

Oh no, I can't stand that font, and I've looked at far too many papers and books printed in it. Too spare and thin.

I much prefer something like SIL Gentium, URW Garamond, or even BitStream Charter. The latter two even work just fine in LaTeX with the MathDesign package.
