    Wayfinding font.

    Any suggestions for a font besides Helvetica that will be used on directional signs?

    Thanks!

    Frutiger. It was originally commissioned in 1968 for Charles de Gaulle International Airport...

    Try using Heue Haas Unica instead of Helvetica, if you're looking for sans type

    ... or maybe try Rawlinson, designed as the wayfinding font for the National Park Service,
    but it's serif though
