Special Situations
Over the years, change was gradual. Pre-industrial signs were stone or wood, but with the development of Darby’s method of smelting iron using coke-painted cast iron became favoured in the late 18th and 19th centuries. Cast iron continued to be used until the mid-20th century, but it was gradually displaced by aluminium or other materials and processes, such as vitreous enamelled and/or pressed malleable iron, or (later) steel.

About this font

Signal Mono is the fixed-width version of Signal.
Signal Mono extends the voice of Signal, only with a more technological vibe. It is a deep dive into the initial concept of a straightforward bureaucratic typeface, that would be well-suited for plain, no-nonsense typesettings.
Serious and technical, Signal Mono colorizes words and turns them into rigorous elements of monospaced language. As a piece of industrial design, Signal Mono performs better for data visualization, timetables, numbered lists, and other documents where the numerical information counts.
Signal’s aesthetic is inextricably bound up with administrative design. The letters conform to the rigor that suffused most sans serifs of the second half of the twentieth century. An epitome of late-modernist thinking, Signal has a bespoke appearance and a distinctive typographic color.
