With a career spanning six decades, graphic designer Margaret Calvert has produced timeless work that we see everywhere — often without realising it. Whether it is the design of the UK’s road signing system, with Jock Kinneir, wayfinding at railway stations and airports, or the typeface used on the gov.uk website, with Henrik Kubel, her work shapes much of our national visual identity.

This display marks the launch of Network Rail’s new customised typeface, Rail Alphabet 2, designed by her in close collaboration with Henrik Kubel in response to a new wayfinding system at Network Rail stations designed by Spaceagency. It will eventually be used in combination with a suite of bespoke pictograms to sign Network Rail’s stations, and as a text face for all their key built environment design publications.

Supported by Network Rail.
