What font does Dyson use?
« on: August 14, 2013, 02:31:02 AM »
Does anyone know what font Dyson use here....



I wanted to use it on some in shop display graphics, and assuming the font itself isn't their intellectual property, we can do so. That is, if anyone knows what it is called.

Anyone?

Another quick google without submitting an image for analysing suggests a different font though

I personally cant tell the difference though!

Technically the font is known as 'Dyson Sans' and is for internal use only, i.e. it's a custom design and private IP, not available externally (and tightly controlled internally).  It is used - inhouse - exclusively for technology naming and product family names, not for general use.  The secondary font is 'Futura BT for Dyson', a slightly tighter spaced version of Futura than commonly available. HTH.
