ABOUT







Karl-Gustaf "Kåge" Helge Gustafson

Karl-Gustaf "K&aing;ge" Helge Gustafson (b. 1917, Tranemo, Sweden; d. 2006, Mariestad, Sweden) was a Swedish cartoonist who worked for a long period at the Swedish Road Administration's traffic office and the Swedish Transport Safety Agency where he drew road signs. He drew the Swedish signs warning of moose and pedestrian crossings in 1955. Gustafson also designed the Tratex font, which is used on Swedish road signs. Tratex was modified by Chester Bernsten, who works for the Swedish Road Administration, Vägverket, and digitized/implemented by Karl Wångstedt.

Free download of Tratex (2001, Gustafson and Bernsten) at Transport Styrelsen, Sweden.
