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.

Look at that new sign they're putting up in that article - the letters look fat and ridiculous.

Uhm, they're not setting up a new sign. That's the way the logo has always looked....
What they have changed is not the logo font but the font used in the text in the catalogue.
