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.

Not a font snob

Couldn't probably pick fonts out by name in a line up. But, I like what I like. I like futura on the screen as well as printed out. I also remember liking cooper bold.

I made my own font once from my handwriting. It was pretty cool to be able to type as illegibly as I write with a pen. Sadly, I think I may have lost that in the hard drive failure. Surely, the world is worse off for it's loss.
