Signage and Legibility

We’ve referred to our ‘Beeching‘ project before,  a small family to be based on Railway Station nameboards, yielding a nicely legible set of typefaces ideal for use in large scale signage.  We think this design provides a clear demonstration that old fashioned details, such as serifs and ligatures serve to enhance legibility.
