Helsingin Sanomat adopts new type

Helsingin Sanomat is launching (in Finnish) some changes on Monday. Aside from the changes to the paper’s organization and section, the biggest change will be in the typefaces used. The new types, The AntiquaHS and QuaText, have been designed by Lucas de Groot, the man behind Calibri and Consolas.

Conspicuously missing is the big change that everyone’s been waiting for: switching from a broadsheet to a tabloid format.

I wish I could take a look at the revised paper, but I guess that’ll have to wait until I visit Finland next time.
