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 is sort of like "Why do people keep doing paintings? Why can't they just paint something properly, and have everyone hang that on their walls?". At this point, the problem is solved "enough" where there are loads of fonts that are great for pretty much any situation. What is left is a matter of taste and expression.
