Corridor is a typeface created for quick and easy reading in communication and orientation systems. An extensive set of varying saturation of individual fonts allows wider use not only for typesetting of timetables, but also for journal and book typography. In the beginning, there was a real test: Through a gradual overlapping of typefaces that are used today on EU highways, the seed of this typeface was planted. The real example documents the dominant influence of DIN, Helvetica and Frutiger typefaces. Corridor thus summarises everything substantial to which individual European countries contributed. Practical tests with Corridor typeface for the use on highway signs showed its legibility especially in the negative form with greater brightness between letters. Horizontal endings of the strokes of letters a, c, e, s soothes the typesetting and keeps the text line tighter. The typeface is thus quite legible even from different angles.
