London show for Ubuntu font project


There's an unlikely art exhibition at London's Design Museum this month, as a Manx company shows off its fonts.

Canonical, the software company based in Douglas which produces Ubuntu Linux, is showing off the work of type designer Bruno Maag, with an installation called Shape My Language.

The artwork features images from the Ubuntu font project, part of the rebranding of the open-source computer operating system.

Canonical is also giving Twitter users the chance to get involved, by tweeting @shapemylanguage.

Posts will be displayed in the Ubuntu font.
