Your favourite font

What is your favourite font?

I'd choose Verdana or TrebuchetMS for small-size text (under 10pt) & Handel Gothic or HumanST for bigger sizes (above 20pt).

It's a bit hard to read, but Vampiress is one of my favorite fonts.

Times New Roman Rules!

I like using Impact - big and bold!

I like dark garden - a weird, dark, twisted kind of font.

It really depends on what I'm doing with it. I use Impact in a lot of my ads, just because of how strong, bold, and eyecatching it is. Cosmos is a good fun font that can be stretched nicely. Boulevard is a great script font. Rosewood is an awesome "I just feel like standing out today" font. I'm using Century Gothic on my website because I love the circular letters.

Dawg4Life, you'd love my Neopets guild page, it's got Vampiress for the links

I'm surprised that most people like the plain sans-serif or slab-serif fonts as opposed to something more striking. That's kind of unexpected.

Century Gothic is my favorite all purpose font, because it can be used in so many applications- Headline, title, copy- and can be used in so many themes. You can never go wrong with it.

My favorite fun font is "Potrzebie" by Rotodesign. In my paying design work, I am constantly working for clients in the entertainment business who love fun retro art. Thus I find myself using this in a lot of my pay work and personal work.

Great idea for a thread, by the way.

That's an interesting page. I got 9/10. I missed the first one, and figured out the rest by deduction and guessing.

9/10 because I know the differences, but they got me on APPLE...

I dislike both Helvetica AND Arial I'm a pretty anti-sans-serif kind of person, except for the decorative fonts.

Call me boring, but I like Times New Roman, 10 or 12 point...

A very close Japanese friend I knew a while ago once said to me "Watashi no koto wo oboeta, onegai shimasu...Yakusoku?"

I forgot his name though...

I scored 8/10 on that one.

I think the same argument holds good for two other popular fonts - Tahoma and Verdana.

Both are essentially the same, except that the former has less character-spacing & height, for equal font-size.
