Sweden's new font
Sweden recently commissioned a new typeface for its international communications. It's designed to present a uniform image to the world. The Sweden.se website (of which I've written before) is a very well-done portal into the country.
I've found a few articles on Sweden Sans, which look at the typeface, and the ideas behind its creation, in different ways. There's a nationalistic take, a radio interview, and info from the designers themselves.
For an overview on typography, a useful primer is at Gravitate, and I Love Typeography is good at absorbing lots of my free time.
