Even harder to find We wonder what conversation took place at Wellington Hospital in New Zealand for them to wind up with this signage.
   ‘Shall I use Univers 55 or 65?’
   ‘No, you should take Univers 45 and use that fake bolding effect on it. That’ll look much better.
   ‘And while you’re at it, squash the type a little, too.’
   A fake bold and artificially condensed—two slaps on the wrist for Wellington Hospital. Maybe a few more slaps considering these run throughout the complex.
