Another great gallery from Christian Annyas:
Speedometers are those kind of items you look at thousands of times during your live, without ever really noticing. You notice the speed, not the meter. And if you do notice the meter chances are you don’t realize someone actually designed it. The company probably even did some research beforehand. Research regarding the readability of typefaces, the right size of the numbers and the space between them.
I can still remember the speedometer in my grandfather’s old Chevy. Maybe it’s something I hang on to to remember a bit more of him, or maybe it’s just because it was also the car I learned to drive in.
