Can someone send me a link to the TERN-font available for download? And what about VSS?

Do you know what is the font's name that is used on American stop signs? I found out that it is not the FHWA, nor the Clearview typeface.

I talk about this typeface:

Belgian road signs

Hi,

I work in a sign shop and a customer wants me to make signs matching these images. After an hour of fruitless online searching, I finally realized these photos were taken in Belgium, not France (duh! You'd think the name "Luxembourg" would have given me a clue).

After that it didn't take long to discover the font is called SNV Becker. It was also used in Switzerland till they switched to a version of Frutiger, as has been noted elsewhere in this topic. I think the funky (in my opinion) lower-case "a" is especially interesting.

Happy wayfinding!

SNV is also used in former Yugoslav Republics - I've seen it in Croatia, BiH and Slovenia.

I found out that it's the 'C' variant of the FHWA fonts.

re-made by me If someone wants it I can post the link...

BTW: I'm working on font which is used in Hungary. I don't know the name, but from pictures it seems to be a combination of DIN and SNV typefaces. Hopefully it'll be finished next week.

Yeah, good work. I think some road-geek would like the link. Anyway, I would rather see introduction of Tern in Slovakia, I don't know what's the problem.

What's the problem in Slovakia? Companies which made road signs don't want to have congruence from abroad. Only our companies (and me ) dispose of font Universal Grotesk which is used here. Kinda cartel-deal.

I'm seeing some highway signs around DC using Clearview, it doesn't look too bad - i kinda like it.

Yes it contains CE characetrs. In Hungary are many multilingual signs with characetrs like š, č, ť, ž etc.

So we can say goodbye to Tern. I doubt those companies would withdraw from their position on our market.

Some of these companies don't use official font Universal Grotesk which they should. I've seen some signs with Arial and Verdana.
Look here (blue signs) - it is not Grotesk:


In Košice we have several signs with DIN 1451.

We should wait whether other EU countries will introduce Tern. Maybe when we will be last non-Tern country our companies withdraw.
