The clever and easy way to set wayfinding pictograms. Placing pictograms as single vector images makes designing signage a time-consuming task. But with this font designed by Andreas Wohlleben and its built-in OpenType intelligence using pictograms becomes as easy as typing words. All symbols will will always align perfectly to each other and to the surrounding text.
Each pictogram is available in 4 different version and you can easily assign an additional background color or turn the sign into a prohibition sign.
Typing instead of searching. With Wayfinding Sans Symbols you don’t need to scroll through endless glyph palettes to look for one symbol among hundreds of symbols. Just active ligatures and type in the mnemonic codes like #wheelchair, #parking, #toilet and so on. An overview of these codes can be found in the type specimen PDF.
Over 400 symbols—made for signage use in airports, public transport stations, office buildings, hospitals, malls, parks, sports facilities, university buildings, libraries, museums … Wayfinding Sans Symbols has a full coverage of the Unicode range “Transport & Map symbols” and a lot of additional signs that are missing in the typical wayfinding symbol sets.
