Who thought developing your own font would be a money saver? The BBC has created a new typeface called BBC Reith, named after the broadcaster's founder. As well as being specifically designed to work best on mobile devices, it will save the Beeb a few bucks on the balance sheet.


Be honest -- how often do you think about the font you're using? You're exposed to words in all shapes and sizes on a daily basis, whether texting a friend, writing a resume, or jotting notes in your text editor of choice. But fonts convey different meanings, and if you pick the wrong one you could find yourself either dismissed for a potential job opportunity, or worse, laughed at by everyone in the office before they throw your resume in the trash.
