B612 team wins international design award

Congratulations B612 team on Label Observeur du design 2018

The Airbus team that has designed the PolarSys B612 font has been awarded the distinction “La Label Observeur du design 2018”.  The Observeur du design is awarded for good design practices and innovation and is open to a very broad range of designs including products, physical services space and images.

The B612 Font was designed by a human factors and typographical team at Airbus to optimize readability and reading comfort in cockpit displays. You can read more about it in Laurent Spaggiari’s article for EclipseCon France 2017. You can download the font from the B612 project pages

As an award-winner, the B612 team qualifies as a contestant in the “Étoiles Observeur du design 2018” contest. Judging takes place later in December 2017.
