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.

It's their business, but it's hard to imagine that Verdana is going to work in print.

There was a big deal when Apple stopped using their Garamond but really, it's just another moment in another day.

If you can read it clearly, it's working for you.
