UK Transport Med & Heavy font, PC & Mac for UK Road Signs
UKTransport MED and HEAVY is a mixed-case font and is used for all text on fixed permanent signs. Motorway route numbers are displayed in Motorway Permanent (light on dark) or Motorway Temporary (dark on light) on motorway signs; these have elongated characters and are designed to add emphasis to route numbers on motorways.
UKTransport Medium is the lighter variant (ie, composed of narrower strokes) used for light text on a dark background.
UKTransport Heavy, this is (as the name suggests) a bold version of the Transport font, for use with dark text on a lighter background.
Buy BOTH versions for the low price of only £19.99. If you are involved with the motor trade in any way this is a must have font set and at only £19.99 complete will pay for itself over and over again.
UK roadsigns are governed by an extremely complex and detailed set of guidelines. The basic units of measurement used by sign designers are the 'x-height' (the height of the lower case letter 'x') and the 'stroke width' (sw) (4 sw = 1 x-height). The sizes of borders, symbols and arrows and the spacing and layout of the sign face are expressed in sw, so that all the elements remain in proportion. The x-height of a sign is dictated mainly by the speed of traffic approaching it, hence 300mm x-heights are common on motorways, whereas parking signs are mostly at 15mm or 20mm x-height
