Z vs S

I was at a talk for Suzie Dent's new book on emotional language and there was a question asked whether she prefers a "z" or a "s" in words like "Lazer" and "Razor" she said that was the original version. Like most things seen as americanisms in language they are actually the way words used to be spelt. I personally like the use of the "z", as a graphic designer it is an underused glyph. There is an exotic beauty to it's zigzag pattern. We should bring back the use of zeds instead of ess's

Which one do you prefer?

  • Z

  • S
