The Design Museum Introduces Font Sunday as a Way to Appreciate Typography

By 3 months ago

Font Sunday, initiated by the Design Museum, is rotating a typographical showcase each week. This week, electronic display fonts have stolen the limelight.

The fonts are decidedly integral to everyone’s technological experience—everyone recognizes the seven-segment display found on timers and alarm clocks, not to mention the old Apple Mac greeting: Hello!

It also highlights a famous spot for New York font-lovers, the digital clock on Water Street designed in 1971 by Rudolph de Harak.

And who could forget the E.T. font from the Atari game?
