Monotype has updated Transport for London’s (TfL) iconic typeface to coincide with its centenary, featuring new hashtag, “@” and ampersand signs.

The new typeface, Johnston100, comes a century after Edward Johnston’s original designs were introduced on London Underground, and almost 40 years after consultancy Banks & Miles brought in New Johnston, adding two new weights and accompanying italics for the full set.

Johnston100 will be rolled out next month. Keep an eye out for it on printed materials, such as Tube maps and posters (limited edition prints are available to buy from the London Transport Museum shop).
