Ubuntu font on show at the Design Museum, London

by Russell Barnes

The Ubuntu font goes on display at London’s Design Museum, along with world-renowned type designer Bruno Maag’s Shape My Language installation…

Fans of Ubuntu might want to take a visit to the Design Museum cafe and atrium before the 28th February to see a combined display of the Ubuntu font project and Bruno Maag’s Shape My Language installation. Leading typeface and logo design agency Dalton Maag, who have worked with some of the biggest brands in business (including BMW, MacDonalds, Toyota and British Telecom), collaborated with Canonical and the Ubuntu community to design the Ubuntu Font Family. As reported back in December, the Ubuntu Font was open sourced and made available for download from both the Ubuntu website and via the Google Font Directory.

As an extension to the display, Canonical is offering visitors the chance to become a part of the display by projecting community tweets onto the wall of the Design Museum in the Ubuntu Font. Simply add @shapemylanguage to your tweets to take part.

Shape My Language was first displayed in March 2010 at the Walking-Chair Gallery in Vienna and is comprised of a large collection of glyphs from the world’s many script systems.
