ABOUT







Marek Sigmund

Polish designer of Drogowskaz (1975) for the Ministry of Transportation of Poland. This geometric sans-serif typeface is used in public signage in Poland since 1975. Its capital letters exhibit a strong influence from Johnston, while its lowercase letters are closer to Spartan. See also here for a discussion of Polish traffic signs.

Digital versions and/or extensions of Drogowskaz:

  • The free Drogowskaz font by Emil Wojtacki (2006).
  • EFN Tablica Drogowa (2001). A free font by Grzegorz Klimczewski.
  • The commercial typeface family Sigmund (2019, Mateusz Machalski, Borutta). This is a liberal extension of Drogowskaz. Machalski explains: With the increase of weight, Sigmund turns into a geometric display in the spirit of vernacular typography from the signs of Polish streets.
  • Next (2017, Ludovic Balland, Optimo). A sans family in 22 styles, including Text, Poster and Mono subfamilies.
