TERN typeface

One result of a previous research project (SOMS/In-Safety “Substituting/Optimizing (variable) Message Signs for the Trans European Road Network”) is the typeface TERN. This typeface was developed to enhance long-distance legibility. Tern regular and tern narrow were adopted by law as the official Austrian road traffic typefaces. More about TERN on the IIIDre website.
