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.

for screen: DejaVu Sans
for print: Gyre Termes


I second the DejaVu family for on screen. For printing, I'm a fan of the Free family, especially Free Serif. It's a bit more graceful (and taller) than Times New Roman. Then again, I'm a stick in the mud; I actually like Times New Roman for printing.
