Having successfully browbeaten the DPW into replacing the malformed Appleton Street sign, the font kvetcher of the South End has turned his steely gaze toward the no man's land between I-93 and South Bay, and he's not liking what he sees one bit:
This post is a perfect example of what's wrong with the new street signs being installed across the city with the new font. "BOSTON ST" is correctly printed using all capital letters. "Al Zwiercan Way" is incorrectly printed. The height ratio of the capital to lower case letters is completely out of scale and the name itself is crookedly printed. It looks shabby in comparison to the correctly printed sign for BOSTON ST. The new font is great, but it's important that it is used in correct scale. It is a small detail that makes a huge visual difference.
