"Pretty much we are all back at work, because I think that's what we need to be in our particular industry," he says. "Obviously it varies from industry to industry, but in financial services it's more important to be in the office because its a very live industry".

No explanation as to what he’s getting at. Do they have to shout and woop at each other?

The idea is seemingly that by moving to a font designed in-house, they won't be paying for a licence to use Gill Sans.
Great typographer, toilet of a human, whatevs.

I actually prefer the new logo, tbh. Those bottom-heavy fonts grind my gears. The tail on the Arial R <spit> is a particular bugbear and another reason why this forum is in Lato.

It's used as the header/footer on my company correspondence and invoices, but I use Bodoni for body text. Gives it a nice old-fashioned feel.

I understand Gill caused some consternation when he was carving Ariel and Prospero onto Broadcasting House as he refused to wear undergarments under his artist's smock...

@kreuzberger - is Lato what I used to call a "dynamic font" on this site, as in you don't need it on your computer/phone for it to be displayed correctly?

A "dynamic font " is not a term I know. Lato is a Google font which is part of the firm's project to not consciously make the internet stink of gusset juice. You call it from the top of the CSS file.
Code: Select all
@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Lato&display=swap');
.wossname {
nouns: adjectives;
}

...if anyone is interested.

50k is relatively cheap for a logo change.

My university spent 350k on a logo change (despite having one of the best graphic design departments in the country, and a general feeling amongst the student body that it would be a great boon to have that in their portfolio). The logo went from something a bit underwhelming but geographically and culturally connected to the establishment, to just writing the university's name within a box, all in some awful modern stencilled typeface.

Though that might win gammons top trump as it's a waste of taxpayer money and something to do with unwashed tax-dodging, job-shirking student layabouts.
