Why is DIN popping up everywhere?

Anyone else notice FF DIN is everywhere? advertisements, magazines, canadian broadcasting corp, CA armed forces, etc.

Is there something I missed that started this trend?

Some might say "stop being sheep", others "bah humbug!"

Actually, Chris, you're right about the trend's beginnings, but it's not waning. I should be able to explain it, but I can't.

Perhaps Din is "The Meta of the 2000s" :-)

DIN or FF DIN?

Either way, people are learning to love Grotesks again, especially DIN and Akzidenz.
