Last Night, a typeface saved my life
For sure Kris Sowersby is 100% right, it happen all the time. Even on the métro in Paris, all signs are set with such glyphs in every stations. Direction are much more clear with this text set everyday, at least we can check that the typeface is legible. But all passengers are lost, thanks to this unique repetitive signage everywhere. Cruel world.
Seriously, a legible typeface require a little bit more work than just designing “agh! iIl1 0O” different from each others.
