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.

These guys need to see a doctor. Seriously.
I'm not a font geek, but I hardly see any difference between the two fonts. I never look carefully at fonts themselves.

Its understandable if people don't notice the change until pointed out, but if you can tell the difference between Futura and Verdana side by side, maybe its you who needs a doctor.
