All Caps

September 30, 2010

I’m a fan of  fonts in all caps, when meant to make a simple statement. Not when they are used in a large body of text, in email subjects or an entire tweet. I’m especially a fan of all caps in street signs. But apparently NYC is not.

“The city will change the lettering on every single street sign – at an estimated cost of about $27.5 million – because the feds don’t like the font.

Street names will change from all capital letters to a combination of upper and lower case on roads across the country thanks to the pricey federal regulation, officials said Wednesday.”
